Dear Mr Gibson,

Many thanks for your query. Currently we're working to capacity and unable to accept new writers. We wish you the very best of luck and success.

It was a sweet form letter and very prompt; just a pity they don't indicate on their website that they are not open to new writers now.

Same day form rejection, upmarket/literary with strong LGBT themes.

In the email, she said: "Many thanks for your query. Currently we're working to capacity and unable to accept new writers. We wish you the best of luck and success."

So maybe she's closed to queries? Of course, she could have been lying and "we're full!" is a polite way to say "no".

Maybe she put you on her spam list for querying her when she was closed.

According to her website, she's open again.

ON 3/14, I've sent her a query, though she's not accepting any new queries. I've nudged her via email and got nothing back. I'm the first one here. No response.

1/29/12: 9/14/11, I've queried her again. Two weeks ago, (and late to sending a nudge due to printer), I nudged her and got no response today.
