Unfortunately, Bastiansmom, there is no set standard. It depends on the agent and the agency. Some agents will take the queries with them, some won't. Some agencies will assign the queries to a different agent, some will just ignore them all. Just assume the worst and query another agent at the agency, then query the agent again as soon as she resurfaces at a new agency. Unless they post other instructions, of course.

Does anyone know what standard procedure is when agents leave an agency regarding queries that were not responded to. Are they passed along to other agents or just deleted? I tried to Query Ann Rose at Prospect since Becca is no longer an agent and the submission form wouldn't allow me to query since I had previously sent a submission.
Thanks in advance if you have any insight!

Since she left Prospect, and doesn't seem to be agenting anymore, I'll be CNR'ing this one.
I wonder how many others queried her just before this change?

Hmm....I also never got an e-mail confirmation from Prospect Agency. Should I re-submit?

...welp, gonna CNR this one...4/5/18. Seems like she’s gone into the editing business for herself! Good for her. :)

The form was actually really lovely. I was happy to be able to pitch my work in an organized fashion, and it made me feel pretty confident that the work I was submitting was the best work I had! I'm a bit disheartened to see that there aren't a lot of responses received, but I suppose it's worth it if the responses they do send are useful? Idk, it's all relative, I suppose.

I never received a confirmation email following my online submission 71 days ago. Has this happened to anyone? Thanks.

EQ - 2/7/16
CNR - 8/10/16

This is the third time I've had a no-response from this agency, with three different mms (2011, 2012, 2016). Probably will not query them again, since this seems to be chronic with them. (Mms #2 just got re-issued with its second publisher.)

7/19/17 I'm going to be an utter idiot and try Prospect with this new mms & query. At worst, I'll CNR it five months from now.
Mms withdrawn for offer of publication, 9/15/17.
