@jennadevillier I feel like we’re in all the same maybe piles. I'm waiting from Sept 10th. I had a few Sept submissions turn into fulls the last couple weeks so it's possible there are more coming.

@jennadevillier, I’m waiting from the beginning October. Their website says they try to answer all queries but they might not be able to. But it looks like most people do get replies.

Thank you very much for sending me your work. I’m afraid, however, that I am going to have to pass up the opportunity to represent it. I am currently taking on new clients quite selectively, focusing exclusively on work I feel a deep connection to and have a strong vision for how to sell. I honestly don’t feel that I could represent your work with the requisite enthusiasm in this tough market, but trust another agent will feel differently. I wish you the very best in finding a good home for it.
