Agents and non-fiction writers

What are the chances of a non-fiction writer being agented as opposed to a fiction writer?

The chances are excellent. There are more non-fiction than fiction books sold in this country — thus publishers are often more interested in non-fiction — so agents definitely will not turn away non-fiction writers. Each agency has its own tastes and areas of interest, though, so it's worth calling or emailing them first to find out whether they're interested in your particular genre of non-fiction.
