@ Writer67 (and others that don't get the receipt)

Some of the emails do go to their spam folder, including mine, but I checked with Peter last year about a submission when I didn't get a receipt, and he told me they keep an eye on their spam folder often to rescue every query that lands there. Personally, I've never had the receipt but Peter still replied.

Form letter
Thank you for the opportunity to read your submission, which we have carefully considered but decided to decline. Unfortunately, due to the volume of queries we receive, we are unable to reply with individual feedback.
We hope you will not be discouraged by this reply, as this is a subjective business, and other agents will likely feel differently. We wish you the best in finding the right match for your work. If, however, you end up querying a new project in the future, we would of course be happy to consider it.
Wtih warm regards,
