My queries to two agents at William Morris have bounced. Anybody else have this problem or know how to fix it?

@DennisBerkemeier--It has a literary division. And also, don't writers have talent? :)

Email query 2/6/22
Went for query only, no pages.

Found this interview (2018) where she says she wants "Query only (no manuscript pages or attachments unless requested)."
http://quick-brown-fox-canada.blogspot.com/2018/01/interview-with-literary-agent-dorian.html

But then here it says "Send a query letter and the first 10 pages of your manuscript (not as an attachment)."

Queried 12/21/21

Finding anything about the submission guidelines is ridiculously hard, I did find a larger list of genres that she's interested in on her AAR profile. It looks like she doesn't want any of the manuscript in the email?

She's a long shot though.

In case WME ever comes by: I couldn't find a SUBMISSIONS link to save my life, nor anything about this agent, not even their email address.
