"I truly appreciate you sharing your work [title] with me. I'm sorry to say that the project isn't the best match for me right now. I understand the querying process is arduous, so please know that just because I don't plan to pursue right now, that doesn't have a bearing on your talent as a writer or the project as a whole. Other agents will most likely feel differently.

As you continue your querying process, Emerald City Literary Agency and I would like to share some resources:

[PublishingCrawl.com] (a group blog featuring agents, editors, sales reps, and authors)

[QueryTracker.net] (A database of agents, made by the same people who created Query Manager!)

[absolutewrite.com/forums/] (A discussion board, with a fantastic YA section as well as a "background check" section for agents, and a place to post your query for critique. You must have a thick skin, but it's an excellent resource!)

[susandennard.com/for-writers/] (A curated list of resources created by a talented, New York Times bestselling YA author!)

[https://queryshark.blogspot.com/] (It's not often updated, but I find the archives so helpful for comments on queries to help guide writers.)

Best of luck,
Caitlin"

Rejection to Full received on 7/13/2021 (with regrets she said) it was very kind, very helpful, and not at all formal. She gave me specific advice for moving forward and I'm excited to implement it in my revisions.
