Text: 'Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to consider your project. I carefully read and consider each submission I receive, and I’m sorry to say that I respectfully pass on yours. Agenting is subjective, and while I couldn't take on your project, another agent may well feel differently. I know your work is important to you and I thank you for thinking of me. Wishing you all the very best with your writing.'
