Form rejection : 10/09/2020 Sent by an assistant.
Like KellyE and JBL246, the response contained zero information and was basically a form rejection 'project is not a good fit for us' template which is not what one would expect after a full request.

Does anyone know how long to wait before nudging Stephanie on a full request? I looked on her agency's website, but I couldn't find any nudging guidelines. Thank you!

Like KellyE, I got a form rejection with zero feedback from an assistant after a partial, then a full request, and then waiting 6 months. 'Not a good fit' comment after all this time is pretty poor. However, I am learning to expect less and less from this process. Likely time to move on to trying small presses.

I understand agents are busy, but:

4/23 #dvpit request
4/30 full request
7/17 notification of offer of rep, deadline 7/31
7/31 form rejection

There was absolutely no response when I notified them of my offer, and after 3 nudges, I finally got a form rejection ON the day of the deadline. I understand the rejection, no hard feelings there. If it's not a fit, it's not a fit. But to have radio silence for so long with a #dvpit request, especially after the initial email notification and follow-up, is incredibly disappointing.

Email query to Maria Vicente 4 Feb 2020
10 page request from Stephanie 21 Feb 2020
Request for full 3 March 2020
Confirmation (after I requested one a week later) of receipt. Fingers crossed! I really want to work with Ms. Winter.
(26 May: full still out, this waiting is KILLING me! *laughs nervously*)
4 July, still no word. Have nudged but no reply. I’m beginning to wonder if I should just close this one out.
Got a rejection on 14 July. Which is fine, I totally understand rejections, this ain't my first rodeo. What frustrates me is the way it was handled. No confirmation of receipt of the full until after I asked if they'd got it. After a wait of over four months, and no reply to a professional nudge email, I received a form email saying my project isn't a good fit at this time. Surely they could have told me that when I initially queried? Or after reading the partial? And to receive no feedback at all, I dunno, feels a little insulting. Maybe just me. Thought I would share.
