Thank you for your query. While I read all query letters and make every effort to respond, because of the high volume of unsolicited submissions I receive, there are times when I am only able to respond to those queries in which I am interested in seeing more of. If you have not heard back from me within six (6) weeks after sending your letter, you may assume that I have passed.

Catsamoa79, true but her QueryManager form is now open, and that is controlled directly by the agent.

Patrick --
Although the Dijkstra website still shows her as being closed to queries, I was able to use the link under her name here on her QueryTracker page, this morning, and was able to submit successfully, with a confirmation from her office that the submission was received,

Form: "I'm sorry to say that while there was a lot of creativity here, I didn't connect with the writing in the way that I needed to in order to be the right agent to champion this work. As you know, these decisions are largely subjective and another agent or editor may have an opinion completely different from mine. Thank you again for thinking of me and best of luck with your future queries."

I'm not wholly thrilled to be told "I admire your creativity" in a form letter. While I appreciate she hasn't embraced the, "no response means no" ethos, I highly doubt she admires the creativity of every person she rejects, making the compliment meaningless.

FR: received email requesting full manuscript and synopsis. Uploaded to QueryManager same day :)
