Patrick - I tried to email a submission both directly to Sarah and to the general submission address and both came back as a permanent error. Anyone else have this issue?
Update: Tried sending again today and it went through fine, with a confirmation from Sarah that even though she is on maternity leave, she is still reviewing submissions.

Her email is sbedingfield@lgrliterary.com. Seems they allow multiple options to query: the form on their website, their general submission email, or to email the agent you seek directly.

Did anyone else get the autoreply that similichtman did about maternity leave? I also queried on 5/20/22 but didn't get it.

Same problem as KittyTurner. I queried via the online form on 8 Nov 2021 but got no confirmation (NB this agency sends confirmation). Re-sent via email on 12 Jan 2022.

Query and sample chapters were submitted through the LGR website form, but I did not receive the automated confirmation.

Queried this agency back in August of 2020. Never heard back. I understand lit agents are busy but I hate it when they don't show the modicum of professionalism by responding that they're not interested.

Form query on 15 May 2021! Still keeping it open as it's in the three-month range.

Of note: at the time I submitted, there was no option to pick a specific agent to submit to; you simply had to put their name in the text of the query letter you pasted in the box. At the bottom of the form, there was also a box that they specifically asked us to leave comments about the form. When I submitted, I noted that I loved having individual questions to answer, as it takes the guesswork out of a query, but I wished I could denote which agent I wanted to send it to by picking from a drop-down box.

Cut to: I just checked their website today. They now have a specific box for authors to note which agent they are submitting to. They ALSO tell people to e-mail the agents directly if they prefer--something I am SURE was not there before, as I would definitely have done that rather than the form. I'm glad these changes were made! It def makes it easier for others going forward.
