I’ve heard that Australian agents rarely (or never) consider taking on new authors and, as Snarkling from Down Under, I’ve often wondered whether it’s worth querying overseas agents. In this age of rampant globalisation, is being in another hemisphere too big a hurdle?
only if you spell things oddly, like humour, globalisation, and Snarque.
Donna Leon lives in Italy and manages to be represented and published here very well.
Why don't Australian agents take new clients? Do they think their current clients will live forever, or more to the point, publish forever?
