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.

A rejection is a rejection but a few kind and encouraging words help the medicine go down. Here is my latest.

Thank you for submitting your query for THE RAGGED EDGE OF CONFLICT to Corvisiero Literary Agency for our consideration. It sounds like you are doing great work with your counseling and speaking engagements, but unfortunately I didn't connect with the proposal as strongly as I 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 me, 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

Sent my requested full manuscript February 1st 2021. Still haven't heard anything back yet. Tried to use the ?info@corvisieroagency.com email at the bottom of the page and my message and email address was blocked. Tried to contact one of the agents who sent the request for the full manuscript through her website, no response. I just want to check in to see how things are going. Is that too much to ask? I'm paranoid because she is the first agent ever to requested a full manuscript from me then I find out about all the bad stuff afterwards. Does anyone know of a way to get a hold of her? Please let me know. Thank you.

I found the comments on here very enlightening, so thought I would contribute that according to publisher's marketplace her most recent sale was July 2019. I don't know if that's fully representative of her sucess, but I thought it was interesting.
