@ sparklyunicorn Do you mean requery her?

I would think she means the entire MS for PB's, although I took pause at the requirements as well.
I went with the norm and sent a sample along with the query.

EQ 1-16 (auto confirmation received)

@orangrila - I tweeted her a message asking if she wanted a sample or the whole MS. She responded "A sample." so make of that what you will. I hardly think she'll hold it against someone who interprets it as the whole MS.

EQ 10/30/16 (80K--YA speculative/time travel)--SCBWI exclusive
Re-sent EQ to Danielle at Lupine Grove Creative on 1/16/17

I followed the instructions on the submissions page, and cut and pasted my entire ms into the body of the email. I immediately received a confirmation email, so hopefully it worked.

The new agency submission guidelines say to paste "the manuscript" into the body of the email--no attachments. That's very unusual for a novel-length manuscript. Has anyone actually done that so far? Thanks!

Ashlyn, I would re-submit after January 15 and nudge her about your first 50 pages.

How does this affect requested material? I sent her a nudge not long before finding out she was opening her own agency. Should I consider it CNR?

Thanks for the news sparklyunicorn... So I guess if we've queried recently and had no response, we'll have to query again... At least not a no?

Just saw this news:

Literary Agent Danielle Smith, formerly of Red Fox Literary, will launch her own agency Lupine Grove Creative, LLC.

Beginning January 15th, 2017, Smith will be open to submissions at Lupine Grove Creative, LLC. Smith will consider submissions of the picture book, early reader, chapter book, middle grade, and young adult novels as well as work from individual illustrators. Interested parties may send a query via email after January 15th and paste their manuscript within the body of the email to Please, no attachments. Illustrators should provide links to their online portfolios where art can be viewed without downloading.

Unfortunately, due to anticipated high volumes of submissions, the agency may not be able to respond to every query. If there is no response from Lupine Grove Creative within four weeks of submission, authors and illustrators should understand that the submission has been read and considered but that Lupine Grove is not the right agency to represent their work at this time.

I have a partial out with her since the end of February. Haven't heard anything since. Been wondering if I should nudge and mention I've edited it since.

Has anyone received any sort of response from the SCBWI newsletter queries?
