Lauren Scovel

Laura Gross Literary Agency

Lauren Scovel grew up outside of Seattle and graduated from Emerson College with a degree in Writing, Literature, and Publishing as well as Theatre Studies. She began her publishing career as an editorial intern at Zachary Shuster Harmsworth (now part of Aevitas Creative Management). Lauren’s editorial work can be seen at The Millions and Pangyrus. She also worked as an indie bookseller for several years. Lauren is looking to amplify underrepresented stories and voices, and is especially interested in literary and upmarket-crossover fiction, narrative nonfiction, and contemporary children’s books (middle grade and young adult) with a timely, distinctive story and a diverse cast of characters. Lauren is not a great fit for mysteries/thrillers, science fiction/fantasy, historical fiction, or picture books.
