I'm currently polishing my query to send out and am running into contradicting information about including prior publishing experience. I've had two short stories published in magazines, one which offered payment and one that did not. I read somewhere that agents aren't interested in publishing experience in an un-paying field, where as other people say to include anything and everything you can.
Should I even bother to include this, or do the agents even care at this point? I'd rather keep my query short and to the point, and don't know if this would help or hurt.
