Specific Writing Credential Question

Post by Kaiser Phoenix » November 14th, 2011, 6:33 pm

Essentially I have a writing credential that I'm unsure is worth listing on a query letter. I've written weekly content for a popular professional wrestling website for over a year now. Is this experience relevant to a literary agent when I'm trying to query for a YA fantasy novel? Would mentioning this experience actually dissuade an agent from looking at my work?

Thanks in advance and down with the Lakers.
