Form Query 1/26/2018
Rejection: 3/15/2018
From an intern who suggest more show than tell, though a majority of the letter seems like a form rejection

Anyone else who queried in January not heard back yet? Getting twitchy and self-conscious.

Kelly provided me with personalized feedback about my writing! Really appreciated that she took the time to do that, it was helpful.

@ReyGranger and saladspinner, that is why I am always weary when an intern goes through the slush pile and makes decisions on behalf of the agent...

I got one of those from Caleb, and his feedback was also so WRONG (ie telling me my word count was off for my genre, which it was not) that I emailed Ms. Peterson, and she very promptly and politely responded. If you feel he's off base, especially since it's a #MSWL, it might not hurt to email the agent.

EQ: 11/16
ER: 1/22 Said the beginning was too "sexual" for her taste but liked my writing style and invited me to submit future work. Maybe something to consider if your work is similar.

ER: 01-17-2018 Form rejection with one sentence that might be personalized. Although the rejection email reads as if it is from Kelly ("Thank you for considering me for your manuscript") it is signed by an intern.
