There doesn't seem to be an auto-response after filling out the online form. Nothing came by the zoho email I use just for submissions. Nothing showed up on agency website to acknowledge my particular submission. There was just a page repeating what they say in their guidelines (see below). So I'll send a zoho email to my regular personal email (which I always cc upon submitting) so that I have a record of the submission in my zoho mail.

Here's screen of what I got after hitting the submit button on the agency's form page:


Sterling Lord Literistic, Inc. is highly selective in offering representation to writers. We receive an extraordinarily large number of unsolicited submissions and can only seriously consider those with merit. Please submit to us via email by completing the form below. [ But I already submitted on the "form" and there is no "form below" on this screen.] We regret that due to the volume of submissions we receive, we can only respond to queries if we are interested in seeing more material.

Please note that we do not represent screenplays.
Thank you!
