If you are ready to publish and don’t want to go it alone, there are ways to find an agent. I mentioned in an early post a few articles and websites to review. Now I’m going to add Twitter.
If you follow certain organizations/people, they will sometimes tweet when they are looking for new clients, writers, and poets. Here are a few to try: @poetswritersinc, @writersdigest, @submittable. This is NOT AN ENDORSEMENT of any of the above. I only mention that they do post calls for writers. Check out any group you deal with carefully and ask for references.
Good luck and try not to get lost in “Twitter-World.”
