She doesn't seem to be open to queries. I got this from a confirmation email.

"Thank you for your query. I am unable to consider it at this time. Please
check back to see when I am once again open to considering new submissions.

Best regards,

Update: After a full request on one manuscript in June of 2019, I heard from Marisa several times, the last being in May of 2020. She said she like the manuscript but was waiting for the publishing industry to open up a bit more, as the pandemic had slowed things. In the meantime, she agreed to read a second manuscript of mine. I have nudged her numerous times since and have heard nothing, so I am finally closing this out, for both manuscripts.

Meganden - When I reached out to her in late October, she said she was still extremely behind from queries, etc. that she received over the summer. All she said is that she would definitely reach out if she thought my manuscript was a good fit for her list. Not sure what to think at this point.

Update: She's had my full since the end of June also.

Catsamoa79, thank you for responding. It was the end of June I sent in my full but she also hasn't responded to a follow-up e-mail. I think it's safe to say I should move on. Good luck, everyone! :)

Has anyone heard back from Marisa? I know holidays can slow things down. I'm assuming she doesn't respond to fulls that she doesn't want to pursue further, but I'm not sure.

There is a note on the website that Laura Strachan's computer, and hence her email, was having issues. She suggested sending manuscript requests to her again. Not sure if that affected Marisa, but I resent my manuscript just in case.

Update: Heard from Marisa. Her email is working fine. She is just very behind in reading queries and requests she already made.

meganden - Thanks for your response. At least I know I'm not alone! I agree, i think she may be overwhelmed. Guess we'll keep waiting...

Catsamoa79 I sent in my full manuscript on June 28th. I never received a confirmation. I haven't heard anything since her request. She seems to have requested so many manuscripts that she is overwhelmed.

Did anyone who received a full request from Marisa get a confirmation of receipt? I have heard nothing.

Enatus - I don't think I received a confirmation when I submitted via form. I got an email from Marisa after 19 days asking for the full manuscript but have not yet received a reply. From her email to me at that point and a statement on their website, it seems she is overwhelmed with queries and dealing with the material she has requested so far.

Update: I submitted my full manuscript to her on June 22 and have followed up several times since, but no word yet. Not sure what to think.
