@Jamie_Jones that's bizarre because their website says "Do not query more than one agent at New Leaf Literary & Media, Inc."

@AmaMizu6 Suzie Townsend mentioned on her instagram Q and A that they don't pass manuscripts around all that much and you could query another agent if you get a no from her. I just submitted to Patrice Caldwell after not hearing back from Suzie Townsend.

@ AmaMizu6, their website says to not query more than one agent. I take that to mean "a no from one of us is a no from us all".

Queried and received an email stating


"Thank you for querying.
Your query has been received and will be reviewed by our team. If you don't hear from us within one month, it means that we will be passing on your work.
Please don't take a pass as a comment on you or your writing ability; it isn't intended to be one.
We wish you the best of luck with your submissions."


I have not heard back so I'm just going to assume they passed on my work. But since the email was a little vague, I am unsure whether not hearing back was a rejection from this literary agent or the entire agency.

I queried Patrice 5/3/21. The email auto response said if they don't respond within a month, it's a pass. I'm not so clear if that means an ENTIRE agency pass, or just that specific agent? Since the email goes to the agency (with agent's name in the subject line), I would assume the former. However, the language on the website is rather vague. Does anybody else know?
