I wasn't sure what subject line to put; they have a group email address, but say to aim queries at a specific agent. I just put "Query: TITLE" since that is standard, but if I find out that was wrong and I should have included the agent's name in the subject line (IN ADDITION TO addressing them by name in the letter, of course), I'll post that here so people know.

Thank you for sending me your query, and I apologize for taking such a long time to respond. I held onto this query in particular for longer than I like while I considered it, but in the end, it just didn't grab me enough. You deserve an unequivocally enthusiastic agent as your advocate.

I wish you the best of luck elsewhere.

I think this is a form response but I thought it wasn't and was happy for a second. Ah well.

Rejection 12/18/18 -40 days. No real feedback, but said she held on to it longer to consider.

EQ: 11/12 YA historical magical realism
Update: 31 days no response but looks like I’ve been skipped? Perhaps I'm in her maybe like and she’s just backlogged?
Update: As Dunham will be closing on 12/14 I resubmitted my query with a gentle nudge as I didn't want it to have been missed before she closes.
EQ: 12/17 (pretty sure it was a form) Wonder why she waited so long to respond...
