Thank you so much for sending along your project XXXX and for considering me as a possible agent for this work. I have so much appreciation for every writer in this process who trusts me enough to read through something so important to them.

I spent some time thinking about the potential of your story and my own expertise in relation to a potential partnership. I read each query with my own list in mind and specific genres I have a need for, and at this moment, I truly believeI am not the right agent for this project at this time. I am currently looking for a few specific stories, and this one isn't quite what I know I can take on right now. This isn't to say that your work isn't incredible and wonderful, but it is to say that I know I can't bring it the level of enthusiasm and passion it deserves.

This is a subjective reaction based on my preferences and current wishlist. I encourage you to keep looking for your agent match. I'm sorry I cannot be more specific at this time.

Thank you for querying me. I hope you find a home for this soon!

Sincerely,
Emily Forney

She wrote a very kind form rejection which *might* have had some personalization in there. Hard to tell, but a nice note regardless.

The rejection email read like it was personalized, but I think it's just a very kind and encouraging form rejection letter.

reemkhaleel97 interesting because I got the same form rejection (too similar to a current project, invited me to submit anything else I had) so I also sent a second project that was a closer MSWL match and got a very form R ("I read each query with my own list in mind and specific genres I have a need for, and at this moment, I truly believeI am not the right agent for this project at this time. I am currently looking for a few specific stories, and this one isn't quite what I know I can take on right now.")

Project 1:
5/20/21: FQ
7/02/31: Kind Form Rejection stating interest in premise but unable to take it on as she has something too similar in the works and to query her with future projects.
Project 2:
8/14/21: FQ with direct MSWL match
8/29/21: Full Request/Sent Same Day. Goes to show that agents really mean it when they say to query with future projects!
Both projects are YA rom-com.
