Another agent

277080_lightbulb I stumbled upon yet another South African agent, Ronald Irwin through the wonders of Facebook. He is apparently interested in apolitical and guiltless fiction, and is ready to receive your queries.

The general consensus amongst local writers, however, seems to be that it is better to query agents in the US and UK markets. This is simply because the local market isn’t quite mature enough for anything but politically inspired fiction and memoirs – unless you have already made a name for yourself via journalism or similar. Are there any South Africans out there that would like to prove me wrong?
