I'm Eva and I'm an LA-based arts and culture journalist and creative non-fiction writer focusing on stories often left out of mainstream media.
My profiles, features and reviews have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, GOOD, The Guardian, KCET Artbound, Art21, VICE, Bitch, Jezebel and more. I was a 2019 finalist in the LA Press Club awards for Arts & Entertainment Feature (Online).
In my creative non-fiction writing, I explore Latinx identity, education and mental health. My essays have appeared in Electric Literature, Catapult, Refinery29, Marie Claire and more. I was a 2019 Idyllwild Writer's Week Nonfiction Fellow; a 2020 finalist in the Center for Women Writers International Literary Awards; a finalist in the Blood Orange Review 2020 Creative Nonfiction Contest; and a 2021 Pen America Emerging Voices Fellowship finalist.
I run a free monthly newsletter for creatives called Notes from Eva.
I am less than five feet tall.
