Alright, I'm new so sorry if I put this in the wrong place. I looked, but thought this was the most appropriate place to put this. I am fourteen, and very much so a writer. Though when I was twelve I started writing a novel called Hunted. I did try to publish it (starting with getting an agent) and I found this to be very troubling. Going back and forth between school, home work, chores, and trying to keep up with my friends, looking for an agent was becoming quite a task. So I found myself staying up until five in the morning on Fridays and Saturdays making lists and notes of agents, their e-mails and many different preffrences. I finally began the great task of sending out quearies. Or I heard it was a great task. After only two weeks I got a response asking for a synopsis of my manuscript and a bio of myself. I sent both and then was asked for the first the chapters of my book. All the while this agent new I was only thirteen. In the end this agent read my entire manuscript called me personally and then went on to getting other opinions from her co-workers. And that's where confusion arose. She was advised not to pursue my writing because of my age. And though she and a few others within her office wanted to represent me she had to go with the majority vote. Along with this she did express my manuscript may not be able to make it far wise with publishers. Alright that's fine, I understand that. I was still stuck on the whole age thing. So anyways I am asking my fellow writer's opinions. Is it fair to judge someone's writing and capability to be published over age? Though I was sure I was very respectable and acted in the most manageable professional manner.
