Asked for a full in 5/17 and exclusive, which I think is their schtick. I have never heard anything ever again. The end. Closing.

Emailed memoir query in Feb. 2019. She hadn't represented a lot of memoir but she also didn't seem too big on platform from what I could gauge from past interviews. Nevertheless, I never received a response.

Full request same day. She asked for a 2-week exclusive submission, but the full ms is already out with other agents (I sent it anyway and let her know about the other agents).

Memoir (proposal with 45 pages of sample)

EQ 10/1
Request for Proposal 10/3
Nudge 10/17
Reply 10/19 saying thanks for your patience and they will get back soon

ER 11/12 Very kind and detailed. Said it was a hard decision but she didn't "feel quite as engaged as she'd hoped." Spoke very specifically about the sample chapters and the proposal revealing that they do look closely and approach submissions thoughtfully. Rejection but overall very helpful and professional.
