Didn't feel she was the right agent to represent my work. Kind and encouraging form letter.

Thank you so much for your submission. Unfortunately I don't feel I'm the appropriate agent to represent your work as the project just isn't right for me.
I'm sure another agent will feel differently, and with the vast array of opinions in the industry, I wish you the best in finding the right representation.
Thanks again for thinking of me.

Hey Shopcraze1! I saw something on Elana's twitter page the other day that did confirm that she accepts revisions.
However, I'm not sure how long you'd need to wait. I think, generally, some agents ask that you at least wait 6 months. However, if you've been in contact with her before, you could possibly reach out to her and ask if there's an ideal time frame.

If Elana rejects a query, does she accept revisions? If so, how long should you wait?
