It was a polite form rejection, but given the stats on even ever hearing a reply I was pleased to get one!

Form rejection from her assistant.

Dear ____,

I’m writing on behalf of Katherine Fausset, who asked me to thank you for contacting her regarding your work. She greatly appreciates the chance to consider the manuscript.

Unfortunately, due to a full client list, Katherine is currently only considering a very few new projects, and she didn't feel that ____ was quite the right fit. I’m sorry to say that she will ultimately have to pass.

We very much appreciate you thinking of Curtis Brown for your work, and we wish you all success finding other representation for it.

All best,

Olivia D. Simkins
