Today, I queried a new project to this agency. I received a response from an intern saying that my previous query from March 2016 was still active, and she told me I'm only allowed to send one query at a time per their submission guidelines. The previous query is almost a year old, so am I right to have assumed it was already read and rejected? This is the email I sent back to her:

Dear Ms. Montgomery,

I'm sorry if there was any confusion, but I have never sent the current project to your agency. Furthermore, according to the records you provided, I haven't queried your agency since March of last year, which is nearly a whole year ago. It is my understanding that after about three months, a query is assumed to have been read and rejected. So I mark any queries I never got a response to as the agent saying 'no' to representation, and I don't think of it as still being active. I think waiting a year for a reply is more than sufficient. I didn't think the agency was even considering the other queries anymore.

I met her during a query & 1st chapter critique session at a writer's conference. She was so nice and helpful.

Darryl, my query is also from April. I contacted her on Twitter in September and she said she had it but was taking a while because she was getting 50 queries a day at that time. Still haven't heard back.

I sent a submission first week of April 2016. Never heard back. Sent five inquiries, no response. Sent quiry on their web page - nada. Is this usual for this agency?
