I sent my literary fiction MS in June 2019 and just sent a gentle nudge (September 2020), to which she responded that the pandemic had only increased her client reading, so she should probably bow out rather than promise to read it (????)

She requested my full manuscript on 9/18/19. I nudged her on 1/30/20, and she said she hasn't had time to read it and because she has so much work from her current clients, she doesn't anticipate that she'll ever have time to read it. Sigh.

Mistweet, yes she does. It means she doesn't accept full manuscripts. Just query her.

Does she actually represent YA? The website is so vague but it doesn't say she does.

CNR, one of those agents who's a waste of time/not worth bothering.

Another non-responder. Hasn't even requested a Full since September 2017. Closing this one out.
