Query: 4/7
Rejection 4/16

polite form. I never got the generated confirmation email but it was stated on Twitter that those queries went to spam and not to worry. Behold, the rejection came. So if you don't get a confirmation, you don't have to worry. The email was still received.

Did not receive an automated response as Howland Literary's submission FAQ said. But according to a previous comment in the list below, Erin said, on her Twitter, to not resend queries which did not receive an auto response; she has them.

Just posted by Erin on Twitter:

“Quick query update: If you queried me and did not get an autoresponse, the query went to the submissions spam folder. I DO have it, though. No need to resend. I have no idea why some are getting flagged as spam & some are not!”

@leonKemp I tried again today and still didn't get it. Also feeling anxious. I replied to a tweet of hers asking if she can confirm. Not sure if that's somehow inappropriate but I did note it happened with others. In her tweets yesterday she said she was "trying" the email and may go back to the form, hopefully she can confirm and maybe this will help her decide. I hate it when emails are used versus forms for this exact reason.

@kaylee2222 I also submitted today, following guidelines, and haven't received a confirmation. Feeling a bit anxious seeing other people saying the same.

@kaylee2222 I submitted via email today, too. I did receive an auto reply confirmation from Howland Literary through. Maybe double check spam/promotions, etc. before resubmitting?

EQ: 4.5 Submitted via email but didn't get a confirmation. Followed the agency rules on it including her name. Not sure if I should resubmit.

Erin said on Twitter that she’s open to queries now at her new agency, and she’s currently using email rather than query manager.

She’s also posted an updated MSWL today on Twitter.
