Well, at least I received a response:

Thank you for your inquiry. We are sorry that we cannot invite you to submit your work or offer to represent you. Moreover, we apologize that we cannot respond in a more personal manner.

We wish you the best of luck elsewhere.

Sincerely,

Nothing helpful. Obviously, this was a computer response. No evidence the query was read by anyone.

It seemed to be a form letter with a personal bit added in the middle: "You have good credentials, but I don't feel your story has a strong enough premise for me to get editors excited to read it." So that's helpful - the premise isn't strong enough. Now I have to figure out if that's inherently true, or if I simply haven't identified the premise in a strong enough way.

Is anyone else having issues submitting to Dunham's e-mail address? I've tried twice sending a query and sample pages in the body of the e-mail (no attachments) but keep getting a bounced e-mail:

Delivery has failed to these recipients or groups:

query@dunhamlit.com (query@dunhamlit.com)
Your message wasn't delivered because the recipient's email provider rejected it.

UPDATE: e-mails from my outlook account were repeatedly bounced as spam. I sent an identical e-mail from a yahoo account and it went through. This is the first time I've had this issue so I'm thinking it's related to the spam filters on the agency account.
