@dlpoet17 thanks so much for your input! The slush can be a pain, I agree. Good luck to you and your work!!

@reyes I presume it's because she's requested the manuscript and sat on it. I don't think any agent dislikes it IF its significantly improved. Even better if the revision already has an offer behind it. The reality is simple. A lot of us end up in a massive slush pile, hoping and waiting to make it out. It's hard to do, so whatever you can do to increase your chances, DO IT.

does anyone know if Sarah dislikes people requesting to send her a revised manuscript when she already has your older one..?

Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to read your submission.
Unfortunately, after careful review, I have decided to pass on this? ?project.? ?This industry is incredibly subjective, and there are many agencies out there with many different tastes. It is for this reason that I strongly encourage you to keep submitting elsewhere in the hopes of finding? an agent who will be an enthusiastic champion for you and your work.
I wish? you all the very best of luck and success with your? ?writing.
