I got an automatic reply 1 minute after sending that said the following: "Unfortunately, I am currently only able to respond to queries that I am interested in. If you don't hear back from me, your project is not a match for me. Please, don't re-query." But a few hours later he sent a short email asking for the full manuscript. Fastest response I've had from an agent so far!

@swatithegeek: Congratulations!!! I wondered if that was the case, and considering how crazy the world is right now, I thought it might take a big longer than usual. I'll do my best to stay patient and hope for good news like you! Thank you and congrats again :-)

@skihawaii: I got an offer (just today!) about 4.5 months after I sent the full. I didn't follow up at all during this period because I've heard Uwe has been really busy lately. Sending you good vibes! Hope it's good news for you!

For those who have had a request for full MS from Uwe Stender, how long did it take to hear back? I received a request from Elle Thompson, on his behalf, on 4/15/20 and sent my full MS the same day. I haven't heard anything since then, aside from confirmation of receipt. Just wondering if I should follow-up or stick it out a little while longer?

Anyone who gets to work with him is lucky! Uwe is a kind and knowledgeable agent. I was extremely grateful to get a full request and receive personalized feedback on my work which will help me improve this manuscript.

Sent an electronic inquiry - 6/21/20 or so
Got an email back. Uwe says he's "unable" to respond to queries, so if I don't hear from him, "your project is not a match for me." I had to laugh. Uwe doesn't mind receiving queries, but his agency can't even get someone to send out a form email? That doesn't make his agency look very good.
