Queried 9/1/21 and got a full request on 9/13/21. Middle Grade horror. Query was addressed to Marisa, but response was signed by Tessa Shaffer.

I got the exact same message as OPKiwi. Lol. What's the point? Don't say that you liked the query and synopsis and not the pages. Just a simple no thanks is better than that! They had me questioning my sample pages and scrutinizing my synopsis (which is really quite basic!). Seeing the other comments here, I'm glad it didn't go further

"Thank you for submitting your query for [title] to Corvisiero Literary Agency for our consideration. Unfortunately, we will not be requesting to read more of the work at this time. Even though we found great qualities within your query and synopsis, we didn't connect with the sample pages as strongly as we had hoped to champion the project.

I'm sorry to not have better news to share. The publishing industry is very subjective, so what may not work for us, could be just what another agent is looking for. We encourage you to continue your pursuit of publication. Keep honing your skills, learning about the industry, and always embrace a growth mindset. We're rooting for you!

Best of luck,
Tessa

Thanks SarahLindsay42 for that update. I had seen that info about Marisa firing her entire staff "for their protection" but forgot about it. I did have her on my list but have now removed her. Thank you!

Received a full request last week. However, it was not Marisa's name signed on the request it was the name of an intern at the company who I could not find any professional information on.
After a few min of googling the agency itself I found this from "Writer Beware" (scroll to middle of the page): https://accrispin.blogspot.com/2020/06/dawn-frederick-of-red-sofa-literary.html
Asked my network of writer friends about it and their response was to avoid the agency due to the above controversy.

Very kind rejection. I can't say if it was personal or not, but I don't find any other comments here that mirror the wording in my rejection. But as always, a response is a response and I am grateful for that.

Submitted full 4 months ago, and still no word yet. I really love this agency, especially Tessa who had asked for my full. But sadly, after all this time, I’m guessing it’s a pass. After submitting my full, I stopped querying because I was so hoping this agency would pick me up. Back to it I suppose.
