Elizabeth Winick Rubinstein is currently judging a women's fiction contest on Writer's Digest. Free to enter, and the prize includes a critique of the first 10 pages of your novel. Worth entering, I think. Submissions close Feb 9, 2016.

JulieGS: I had a full request from her back in 2013. It took a long time before I heard anything back. It may have been a special case as she had passed the MS on to Shira Hoffman (who ultimately declined), but it was 11 months between the full request and the eventual rejection.

I do recall nudging at least once to check on its progress, and once to let her know I'd revised based on agent feedback (for which she requested the revised MS). If I were you I'd probably wait 'til the 3-4 month mark and just send a follow up to see how things are going.

Has anybody heard anything back yet?

I had a Full request on 16 June and submitted straight away, but haven't heard back, although on the website it does say "within 8 - 12 weeks" for responses and my Full has been with Ms Rubinstein just over the 8 week mark now.
Good luck to you all!

mvhaywilliams -- I also addressed her as Ms. Rubinstein. I think this is correct. It's not a hyphenated name. Anyway, it worked for me. Good luck!
