MG contemporary fantasy, 70,000 words. I got a like at #pitmad from her assistant, Elissa, on behalf of Emily. Sent a query three days later and got a full request within a week. I don't know all the abbreviations, so bear with me. :)

It seems like she's missed mine. It's been about 17 days and I've noticed there are three others that she's missed as well over the past few weeks. Does anyone know if that means she's lost it or she might be still considering it or? Any insights would be great. Thanks Anna

I'm in the same boat wondering the same thing, @Anna224. This seems to be happening with everyone I query. They skip over it. I'm not sure if they're receiving my emails at this point. So weird. Let me know if you hear back or learn anything. Good luck!

@ Freckleface
I haven't read anything about no=no from all. Go ahead and submit to other agents there. I've done that.

Does anyone know if a rejection from one agent at Folio jr. is a rejection from the entire Agency?

Form letter. FAST! But it's better than waiting for months and months.

"Thanks so much for sending your query – I appreciate the chance to take a look at your project. I’m sorry to say, though, that I’m going to step aside instead of asking to read more.

Please bear in mind that everybody has different tastes and interests – my decision is based on my present workload, and also based on the kind of material that I’m presently representing. That said, this is a crazily subjective business: I absolutely think you should keep looking for representation because what works for one agent (or publisher) may not work as well for another.

Very best of luck!"
