Greetings all,

I am trying to help my father publish his works; they are written in Spanish. I have had a difficult time trying to locate a literary agent who reads in Spanish. Does anyone know of or have any suggestions for finding a lit agent who will read manuscripts in Spanish? Thanks!

Kat

I never found a literary agent to read my work in English.

Search Google for "Spanish language literary agents" and "Spanish language book publishers." I bet you'll get multiple hits.

Do you still send your writing to agents, Starrwriter?

No, I gave up on those prima donnas after years of failing to get even one out of the hundreds I contacted to read my work.

Katharo, if you have a library close to home, look for a book called "Writer's Market". They list over 8000 editors and book publishers who buy every type of work imaginable! Yes, SW, even yours! I'm sure, Kath, that you can find a publisher there for your father's work!
