Get to Know a Literary Scout in Attendance: Stephanie Hollifield of Corvisiero Literary

Stephanie Hollifield is a literary scout with Corvisiero Literary.

As a literary scout, she is taking pitches on behalf of all the agents at her agency, and passing along worthy submissions to proper agents. That means she can take pitches for the following:  adult fantasy (all kinds), intricate historical novels set before the 20th century, horror, psychological thrillers, LGBTQIA+ stories, young adult contemporary, young adult sci-fi and fantasy, women’s fiction, literary fiction, upmarket/commercial, mysteries, work from historically marginalized and underrepresented voice, folklore retellings, and magical realism.

Growing up in a large family, she was surrounded by love, laughter, and creativity. Her love for reading began in kindergarten and hasn’t slowed down since.

Over the past decade, she has dedicated her life to education, teaching students from age one to thirteen while self-publishing eight romance novels in the last eight years. Her weekends often consist of sitting at some sporting activity with her children while passing the time with a good book. It’s been a lifelong dream to pursue a career in the literary world to help underrepresented voices be heard.

She is personally interested in unique romance stories with strong heroes and heroines that work through their past trauma to find something real. She also loves Children’s lit that teaches valuable life lessons and can be tied into a teacher’s curriculum, YA stories, Mystery/Thrillers, and Fantasy.​
