Jojora, their submission guidelines and tips say:

"Please read each of their bios (on our Meet the Agents page) before submitting to decide who is the most appropriate agent for you. Do not send your query to multiple agents at SDLA."

and

"Make your submission to only one agent at our agency."

So, I would think just submit to one agent only in total and not just one at a time.

Is Sandra Dijkstra Agency a no-means-no agency? I know they state to only submit to one agent on their guidelines page, but is that an "at a time" basis, whereby we can query a different agent if we received a rejection from another, or are they no-means-no?

This was an unexpected, lovely surprise. Especially since I just got a form rejection earlier that day.

"Thank you so much for querying [TITLE]. There's a lot to like here and I really enjoyed your premise. However, I didn't feel drawn to the writing in the way that I needed to be in order to be the champion for this book. This is an extremely subjective opinion and therefore, I'm stepping aside so that you can find the perfect agent who can passionately advocate you and your work. I wish you the very best in getting you work placed."

Kind 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."
