"Thank you so much for querying me. I'm so sorry to let you know that I won't be requesting additional materials or offering representation.

Please know that I can only responsibly take on a few new clients each year, and my decision to pass does not mean another agent won't be a passionate and energetic advocate for your project. I wish I could go into more detail about why I don't feel I'm the right agent for this project, but I'm afraid my workload does not allow it. I know this can be a crushingly opaque process and industry, and I hope you know that writers like you have all of my admiration and respect.

Please accept my very best wishes for your writing success."

I got a nice rejection today about 2 months after query:


Thank you for sharing your query letter with me. I regret to inform you that I won't be requesting additional materials or offering representation.

Please know that I can only responsibly take on a few new clients each year, and my decision to pass does not mean another agent won't be a passionate and energetic advocate for your project.

Please accept my very best wishes for your writing success.

Respectfully,
Margaret
