Lauren Scovel

I grew up outside of Seattle and graduated summa cum laude from Emerson College with a degree in Writing, Literature, and Publishing as well as Theatre Studies. I began my publishing career as an editorial intern at Aevitas Creative Management (formerly Zachary Shuster Harmsworth). My editorial work can be seen at The Millions. I also worked as an indie bookseller for several years.

I am especially interested in fiction and nonfiction involving social justice, political issues, and other timely and underrepresented stories.

What I'm Looking For

I'm specifically interested in fiction and nonfiction stories that effortlessly depict a diverse cast of characters and perspectives.
