Thank you for your interest in our agency. We have reviewed the material you sent regarding your manuscript and are sorry to report to you that we will not ask to consider the work for representation.

Please understand that we are a small agency and take on very few new clients. With limited time and personnel, we've learned to trust our instincts about whether there would be a good fit between a particular writer and us. We certainly recognize that we might well be passing up a good opportunity.

We wish you the best of luck in placing this with another agent and ultimately, a publisher.

Partial request: 4/5/2019 (half an hour later, requested first 50 pages)
ER (personalized, no feedback): 4/16/2019

Katelyn responded VERY quickly to my initial query but after submitting the first 50 pages, she turned it down. She "didn't respond with enough enthusiasm to the prose." She is the most prompt and personal agent I've contacted so far.
