New Literary Agent Alert: Sara Sciuto of Fuse Literary

2016 UPDATE: Sara is no longer agenting. Do not send
send her queries.


Reminder: New literary agents (with this spotlight featuring Sara Sciuto of Fuse Literary — formerly of Full Circle Literary) are golden opportunities for new writers because each one is a literary agent who is likely building his or her client list.



About Sara: Sara Sciuto is a [former] member of Full Circle Literary. A recent graduate of University of California San Diego, Sara also completed literature coursework at NYU. Before joining Full Circle, she gained valuable experience working on film and foreign rights with the Taryn Fagerness Agency. Her great passions in life are travel and good food – and good books, of course, but that goes without saying! While she’s always cultivating new obsessions, her latest are photography and sailing. [2014 update: She is now agenting with Foreword Literary.]  Find her on Twitter.

(Should you mention your age in a query letter?)

She is seeking: Sara is actively building her list with a focus on middle grade and young adult fiction; in particular, contemporary, historical, gothic/thriller/horror, sci-fi, mystery/suspense, fantasy and other speculative fiction. For YA she’s especially drawn to literary voices with commercial appeal (i.e. no chick-lit, please). For MG, her tastes are broader and she seeks everything from provoking historical to fun/silly adventure projects. She has a particular soft spot for gritty narratives, anything with international or regional locales, period settings, and anything with artistic themes.

Sara is also looking for standout picture books, especially those with a quirky or humorous narrative; and welcomes author/illustrators, as well as conceptual or art-driven projects. She’s also considering select adult nonfiction in the areas of craft, design, how-to, lifestyle, and pop culture. For children’s nonfiction, she’s open to a wider range of both narrative and prescriptive projects. Currently, she is NOT considering any adult fiction (all genres).

(How NOT to start your story. Read advice from agents.)

How to submit: To query Sara, send a query letter with the first 10 pages of your manuscript in the email body (or the complete picture book text) to querysara [at]

    Sara Sciuto sounds like a great new agent that might be interested in my manuscript when I finish the final draft. I’m definitely adding her to my list. Thanks for letting us know about her.
