Kind rejection on a full. Definitely disappointing but I appreciate the opportunity and brief feedback.

Dear xxxx,

Thank you so much for including me in your submission for xxxxx. Sharing work with a literary agent is courageous. Kudos to you for taking this step as part of your writing journey. There is also a lot of anxiety as you await a response so please know I'm sensitive to that.

I had a chance to take a look and although the writing is quite nice, this manuscript leaned more angsty YA than the xxxx story I was hoping for.

I know this is disappointing news. Stay tough out there. Keep writing!

Thank you so much for thinking of Nelson Literary Agency for your query. Despite not being able to offer a more personalized response or a referral, do know that your submission for TITLE was reviewed. Even though your project isn't the right fit, it might be right for another agent so don’t give up.

Good luck with all your publishing endeavors.
