FYI she mentioned on her Twitter that if you haven't heard back from her regarding your query it's a pass. She is working through requested material still.

I would really like to query this agent but I find the website form is very inaccessible and not user friendly. Something for the agency to consider, especially to their neurodiverse writers. Maybe provide a different option.

Does anyone know how to nudge Ayesha Pande Literary with an offer? Should I use the website contact form?
