Odd form rejection signed not even by Frances Collin but Sarah Yake. I don't get the part about how they "appreciate your writing" - so unnecessary, I mean, if they can't even individualize it, not even a mention of author's name or manuscript title, what's the point in saying that? lol.

Thank you for your query. Unfortunately we do not think the project is right for us. We receive so many queries that it is not possible to reply in detail on an individual basis. We appreciate your writing and wish you success in your publishing career.

Got a full request from this agent for a different project way back in 2009, so I figured it was worth a shot.

fyi they are open to queries again.

also, the auto-responder says they want the first 5 pages copied and pasted into the body of your email, even though the website doesn't mention this.

I sent a query just to see if they were, in fact, open to queries again (see comment below that they would reopen on September 1) since their website didn't say. In case anyone else was questioning this--apparently they've changed their timeline.
"Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, we are temporarily closed to queries through the end of December 2016. We expect to reopen to queries January 1, 2017."
