Yeah, there is only one and I believe they are based out of London.

I'm guessing because there's not much of a market. The agent's job is to sell to a publisher. How many books on poetry do you see in the store?

You may want to try going to the bookstore and research the poetry aisle. Look for the publisher's name and possibly the agent.

I didn't think to do that. I'll first check the books I already have and then check with the book stores. Thank you!

Maybe you'll find an acknowledge page with the agent's name.

I'll try looking for that page and see if I can find an agents name. Again thank you for your advice.

Hi roda havet,

Have you had any success finding an agent for your poetry manuscript? I've looking around for a while, off and on, and found the most resources on Writer's Market (hope I'm not acting out of place here, pls). They charge a small monthly fee, the references are exceptional though, and very thorough in what an agent of publisher is in the market for. If you enjoy using the library, you can do this for nothing at all.

And, if this message is way past, and you have found an agent, please excuse my intrusion.


Best

No, sadly I don't, not agents, I find that those that do want published poets with a track record (not me). Most poetry publishers call for manuscripts under 50 pages, and those manuscripts do best in university and small press.

All of the references I use are on my desktop computer, somewhere in storage. I'm sort of a gypsy for the next five months, as I relocate, and using a laptop my son is loaning me. (I hate not having my files), my best suggestion is to spend six dollars for a months worth of search through Writer's Market on line. Search in the genre the poetry is about; the publishers will specify if they don't accept poetry.

Good luck. (-:

The book that I have compiled is around 48 pages with 58 poems in it. The poems are made up of just about all types. At this time I'm using querytracker.com but there's not many agents on there that except poetry. :)

I googled 'literary agents representing poetry', found some.
