When searching the literary database, there are a couple specific phrases that you can use to make the search better.

Works by a specific user: by <user>
Works by a specific user in a specific area: by <user> in <area>

For example, to pull up all literary works by Snoink in Poetry, you'd search for:
by Snoink in Poetry

Note that it's not possible to restrict it further by genre.

Caveat
The search is not a replacement for the sorters. For instance, if you wanted to find science fiction poetry, the search would fail miserably. Instead, use the sorters to narrow down the literary area.
