Seems focus is on women's fiction, subject matter. Check website before submitting for what they want today.

My rejection was actually received 5/7/19 but for some reason QueryTracker won't let me select a date other than 5/6 (the date I submitted it) or today (5/9); no idea why that is, but the rejection actually arrived on 5/7. ¯_(?)_/¯
Anyway, it was a very kindly-worded form letter that included language about my query not being a fit for the agency, not just the individual agent. Onward and upward.

Fastest response I've ever gotten for a full request. Would query again based on the speed alone!

She responds to both queries and submissions in a swift, efficient manner. She seems really nice. I would definitely query her again.

Thank you very much for your query, which we have read with interest. Unfortunately, the project does not seem right for this agency, and we are sorry that we cannot offer to serve as your literary agent.
We also apologize for the form rejection. The sheer number of queries we receive prevents personalization in order for us to respond in a timely fashion.
We wish you all the best in finding more suitable representation, encourage you to query widely, and thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your work.

Does she say somewhere she only gets one query a day? Agents usually get DOZENS if not HUNDREDS.

*sigh* Just received a form rejection from this agent. In her current "wish list," she specifically mentions suspense/thrillers, yet in her rejection response, she states: "Unfortunately, the project does not seem right for this agency..." It's obviously not the genre that isn't right for the agency, so why not take a few seconds to say WHY the project is not right? For all the time I spent deconstructing my query to fit into her online form, she spent less time reading my submission and pasting a form response into an email. Frustrating to say the least. And she averages only one query per day, so how is that overwhelming to respond to, having to use a form rejection? I dunno, just sounds like a cop-out. I won't be querying Ms. Stringer again.
