Yes, I think you will find they do. Was having a browse after reading your post and found that Kalem Agency are the biggest agents in Turkey. If you type "Literary agents Turkey" in the search engine it will give more examples of who the agents are here. Be aware that some charge a reading fee.

It seems that there aren't many literary agents. I know of people who have just walked into publishing houses and were signed on. I have submitted to a few places and have been asked for full manuscripts from two but it has taken months just to get this far (which I hear is the case in the US). I have been told by other publishers that they had no idea if they could sell my trilogy in English but that they were sure it would sell in Turkish. I am having the first book translated right now, will publish it myself and sell it online via a series of online booksellers, and then hopefully will make the jump to "real" bookstores soon afterwards. I talked to a manager at D and R about how to jump from the Internet to a place like D and R and he said it's not difficult, we sell thousands of books here...(we'll see about that).
If my model works, I may see if I can succeed with other peoples' books. I'll let you know how it goes. (I have 20 years experience working as an academic editor preparing manuscripts for publication so this would not be a huge leap)
