Her twitter says that the project MUST be YA but that we otherwise do not need to check all the boxes as in POC AND #ownvoices. My submission is YA realistic contemporary but I am not POC and not #ownvoices. Cross fingers she is OK with this.

The rejection (below) wasn't detailed, but I very much appreciate her letting me know her reason!

Thanks for your query. Sorry to say I'm going to pass. This feels more deeply fantasy than I'm interested in at this time. I do wish you the best of luck though.

Query status update from Linda's Twitter: I have now responded to all queries received before January 10th. If you didn't hear back from me it means I either didn't get it or you didn't submit correctly & it was deleted. (Reminder: no attachments, no picture books right now).

Updated to include queries sent up until Jan 14th now
