ARBITRARY “LITERARY” AGENTS!

ARBITRARY “LITERARY” AGENTS

I have thoroughly lost my patience,

With arrogant, ignorant “literary” agents,

Like snide merchants perched in ivory towers,

They randomly dispense their publishing power,

 

I think you must now get the gist,

Of why, as a writer, I am pissed!

They critique: “Sorry, your writing’s not what we seek,”

Even though, at most, they’ve seen a tiny peek,

 

Do they pull the whiskers off kittens

Before they steal their kitten mittens?

But if one replied, “I like what I’ve read,”

Then, I’d probably love her more than my dog Fred!   😊

THE HONEST QUERY LETTER

THE HONEST QUERY LETTER

Dear Literary Agent:

Publishing me would be a blunder,

Because success can breed failure,

My first book: maybe a one hit wonder,

But my second book would fail, for sure.

Sincerely,

Negative Author
