Verse novels and agents

Haven't posted in years. Might as well dump a thought or two.

Since there's no money in poetry, I've written a verse novel. There is a demonstrated market for verse novels (Crank and Inside Out and Back Again) and experimental narratives (ttfn) in YA. I've covered that already somewhere in the archives.

I know this is a silly longshot. But meh. I like silly longshots.

What interests me is the finding of an agent. Like back in the day when I was querying agents for my epic poem 1779 (like a verse novella maybe? 150 pages or so) I have gotten a lot of "this is great but I don't know how to sell it" responses.

It's important to say how encouraging that is.

So I'm saying it.

Not sure what I'm going to do with this space right here, but for now I want to say thanks for the encouragement.
