When I see manuscript submission instructions, I always assume they pertain only to people who have received a manuscript request. I've seen other agency sites where they indicate both query and manuscript submission guidelines, but they usually make it clearer that one set of guidelines is for queries and one is for the event that you get a request. I think the Aragi website is unclear and makes it sound like manuscript submission is part of the initial query process, even though it's not. They should definitely make this clearer. Submitting queries is nerve wracking enough already.

Standard BS. I don't know why they list themselves as being "open" to submissions. They're not. Because they're submission guidelines are not clear i.e. do you copy and paste into the email or attach and how much? I attached my entire manuscript. But the generic answer made no mention of it. "Based on the basis of your query, we're afraid we can't consider your work." Why are they afraid? LOL. The basis of my query? Huh? It's Literary Fiction. Duh.

Thank you for your interest in working with the agents of Aragi Inc. We're very sorry to be sending this letter but on the basis of your query, we’re afraid we can’t consider your work. The high volume of submissions we receive forces us to be extremely selective, and we don't believe we'll be able to give your work the time and attention it deserves.

I have the same question about the confusing query process. Did anyone who sent the full manuscript with the query receive negative feedback about that? Such as svcinnyc...?

ER: 04/03/17 form rejection:

"Thank you for your query. I'm afraid Nicole is simply not taking on new clients at the moment; her list is crammed full and she has as much work as she can handle. We may well be missing out on something wonderful, but Nicole is determined not to over-stretch as she'd hate to neglect any of her current authors.

Our apologies for this disappointing response, we hope that someone else comes through for you soon."

I read that she does have a full list but still sometimes considers adding on a selective basis so took a shot :) I'm happy she responded.

Patrick: There is another agent there, and she seems great (though she requested and then rejected my full). Duvall Osteen.
