I had incredibly bad timing with this agency and opened the form to complete it in the evening, intending to complete it the next morning. When I submitted the following morning, they had closed submissions! Would it be bad form to query again when they reopen submissions?

Amber_Hamilton, they are a "no from one is a no from all" agency since they share a query inbox.

Does anyone know if a rejection from one is a rejection from all at Handspun? Thanks!

Polite form rejection 11/10: "Thank you so much for sending your query and opening pages for XXXXXXX, which we’ve now had a chance to review. We're sorry to say that this isn't the right fit for our list at this time. We wish you all the best in your writing and publishing journey, and thank you for giving us the chance to consider your work." So glad they responded - and quickly. Very professional.
