Many Dutch publishers have already shown interest in publishing work by Amanda Gorman.

The 22-year-old poet stood out on Wednesday with her speech at the inauguration of US President Joe Biden.

Mo Literary Services, which owns Gorman's Dutch translation rights, says that several serious candidates have already registered on Thursday morning.

"Translated poetry is generally not very easy to sell in the Netherlands," said a spokesman.

"But Amanda does represent a new generation that stands out and certainly appeals to peers. You can now see, after her speech on Wednesday, how important social media can be in building an audience."

The American writer gained many hundreds of thousands of followers on social media in a few hours.

Both of her books made it straight into Amazon's bestseller list.

Gorman has long been a big name in the United States.
