For those waiting around . . . I found out that she responds in 4 weeks if interested. If no reply by then, I suggest you CNR and try another agent.

Does anyone know if Curtis Brown has a policy on querying another agent at their agency after one has rejected a partial request?

After hitting send, I realized that there is a different agent at this agency who would probably be a better fit for my book. I hope she passes my query along to her if she's not interested.
