My latest fiction Ms is currently being considered by a wonderful agent at Cameron Creswell agency. Trouble is, though most publishers in Australia now won’t accept unsolicited manuscripts, there aren’t enough agents yet to keep up with the ever-growing number of new writers. The piles of reading on the desks of those much sought after few are becoming unconquerable mountains, which leaves us writers waiting and waiting for what feels like years. Is this business designed to teach patience and persistence?
