2/17/2018 - Auto-reply to e-query sent today:
Thank you for your query. Due to the large number of queries I receive, I am unable to respond to all of them. Your query will be read within the next three weeks. If I am interested in reading more of your work, I will contact you. If you are not contacted within three weeks, then I have decided to pass on your work, and no additional message will be sent.
--Lucy Childs
General submission guidelines on the agency web site say not to query more than one agent at this agency. I guess that means that a rejection from one agent is a rejection from all.
