Memoir, poetry, children's books. How do I find an agent?

by Lorna Collins
1st March 2021

Hello everyone,

I am an avid writer/artist/illustrator. I have published books about philosophy in the past, and more recently written poetry, a compelling memoir, and quirky, colourful stories for children.  But, despite sending my work to publishers and agents continuously for the past 2 years plus, I simply cannot find anyone who will take me and my incessant creativity. 

Any advice or contacts? 

All the very best,

Lorna

Hi Lorna,

Firstly, well done on being a powerhouse of creativity! In terms of submitting your work, might I ask if you are sending all of these projects out together, or separately? While it is great to have so many projects on the go, often agents - and publishers who accept unsolicited submissions - are looking for one individual project to be sent to them at a time.
