The Perfect Agent by Colin Smith

I asked permission to repost this from the comments on my Your Dream Agent post. I thought it was so much fun that everyone should have a chance to read it.

Thank you for sharing!

The Perfect Agent


Wanted an agent for one adorable writer! 🙂


If you want this choice position
Have a cheery disposition
Fair critiques, no snark!
Play nice, don’t bark.


You must be kind, and it helps to be witty
Tell me I’m great when I’m feeling s**ty
Read my novel, say it rocks
Say it’s rad and it knocks off socks


Never be quiet too long
Never say I’m right when I am wrong
Love my writing more than I do
And never lie so I won’t fire you


If you are diligent with submissions
I will never fail to send revisions
I can send you chocolates to make you smile
You can send me checks every once in a while


Hurry agent!
I say with
Sincerity,


Writer, Colin Smith. 🙂


For those who don’t get the reference.:

  1. Thanks, everyone! Donna, don't worry, I don't consider myself a poet. Yes, the first Janet Reid writing contest I won was for a poem. When the muse strikes, as it did with this, I can usually come up with something. But I prefer prose. 🙂
