Profile Update: Merged with Gillian MacKenzie Agency to form Mackenzie Wolf Literary.

PLEASE NOTE: All past submissions & queries to Wolf Literary have moved with us. If the agent you queried at Wolf Literary is interested in your work, you will hear from her at the new agency. PLEASE DO NOT RESUBMIT as this will greatly slow our response time.

CNR: 3/31/2017, Since her longest positive response time is 38 days.

ER: 4/19/2017. I was surprised to receive a personalized rejection from her. She encouraged me to "continue developing" my work and "reach out to agents." Since I submitted to her back in January, I had cut 13K words. Perhaps the 100K+ put her off.
