Form rejection in which my name was butchered. I guess I could say at least they tried? But... sort of stabs even harder.

Thank you for your submission and for your interest in DGA. We have now had a chance to read your opening chapters and I am sorry to say that we don't feel it is something that we can offer to represent. I'm really sorry to disappoint but I wish you every success in your search for a suitable agent.

With best wishes,

Patrick, their website now says on the submissions page:

"If you would like to submit your work, please send the first thirty pages, a synopsis and covering letter via email to Sebastian Godwin at"

I don't see anywhere where it says that this is strictly YA, so they may have changed this.
