Discover the mysteries of Frahlingin Carly Watters in her OnDemand online seminar How to Get an agent.
It tells authors which agents are narrated by the publishing world, how it shapes the début products they are signing, where to find the right agents to reflect what you do... and much more. In most cases, the poet and frahlings do not mingle. Poetry doesn't usually sold well enough to keep an operative in the shop.
He is being plundered by someone who is calling himself an operative. If this is the case, the "agent" represents the writer for an advance charge (and usually for a fee). It is difficult to satisfy the needs of literature agents, and the reasons for this are simple to understand: Frahlings earn their living by reducing the author's remuneration (a so-called licence fee).
Being such, agents need to work on a project that brings home the funds for their writers, so that the agents can take some of that funds for themselves to cover things like rental, supplies, employees if they have any, and their own living expenses. Poetry - as a whole - unfortunately does not go on sale, especially in comparison to literature and non-fiction.
What can a writer do to get feed-back when eliminating the use of literature agents as a source of feed-back expert? A lot of succesful authors of all genres refer to their groups. Several of these groups get up to a tens (or more) of authors. Most importantly, find serious authors who can give you valuable input.
You' ll find these possibilities at meetings, on publishers' web sites and in poetry competitions. Take part in a poetry work-show. The Writer's Digest University, for example, organizes a poetry workshops on a regularly basis. A senior content editor for the Writer's Digest authoring community, Robert Lee Brewer is responsible for maintaining this diary, editing a few market novels (Poet's Market and Writer's Market), creating a poetry collection for Writer's Digest, leading on-line training, talking about the world of poetry and editing, and more.
