Received confirmation of submission immediately; notes in that confirmation that you should consider it a pass if you haven't heard in 4-6 weeks as she currently doesn't respond to all queries

YA contemporary fantasy - 80K - All you still waiting for responses, hang in there.

Dear Writer,

Thank you for your patience while I considered your query. While I wish I could write a personal response to every query I receive, time does not permit it.

Regretfully, your project is not a perfect fit with what I’m looking for at this time.

I wish you the best of luck in finding the right agent for your project soon. Keep writing!
