I did an in-person (well, Zoom) pitch with Michelle at the MN Writing Workshop back in October. I could tell she didn't love the pitch, but she requested the first three chapters. I eventually sent them because I figured, hey, you miss 100% of the shots you don't take, right? Ended up getting the same form letter rejection as ajmiz827 below. I think she did take the time to look at the chapters, because she rejected queries below mine on her timeline before going back to look at mine.

Hi DanielleDauthor, her QueryManager form is open and she controls that directly, so I'd go by that.

Not sure which one is correct, but according to MSWL, she's closed to queries. Here and twitter say she's open.

Requeried her after her colleagues pass
1st January 2023: Partial Request

She belatedly liked my #pitdark tweet (which is always exciting to see)
Queried 15th November right after like
22 November: kind response that I have a full out with her colleague hence she’s closing out this query
I’d queried because of her ‘like’ on my tweet and hadn’t realized she was from the same agency as the other agent, so it’s a bummer. But I really appreciate her kindness in communicating so!

Just looked at timeline.
Congrats to the Upmarket writer who submitted a query on 19-Nov, got a full request same day, and accepted an offer on 20-Nov.
Holy crap, that’s amazing!
