Sometimes it's nice to get a quick, succinct rejection. So tired of agents who hold onto a manuscript for months and months and months (and, oftentimes, never respond). Rejection came from the email account of Haley, Liz Parker's assistant: "I think you’ve got a good story here, but I didn’t connect with it enough to be its best champion. I wish you the best of luck in finding representation."

Emailed memoir query & 1st 25pgs in March 2019 based on similar representation. Received a form rejection one month later.

How are people submitting to her? There's nothing to click on the Verve Talent website and I can't find any other way to sumit to her. Help please!

Thank you for sending this – I’ve had a chance to read and I’m sorry to say I’m not the right agent for the project. I didn’t connect enough with the writing to feel I’d be the strongest advocate. Wishing you the best of luck with this project.

A bit of a bummer to get a form rejection letter when you've sent a full manuscript. I appreciate that agents are busy but wish I had gotten a little more feedback on why she passed on my manuscript.
