Original EQ at Writer's House in September, resubmitted 16 September to Thompson.
Upon realizing she was closed for the period she was transitioning between agencies, I resubmitted on October 8 and received a rejection within about twenty minutes.

EQ with a different project while I rewrite the first: 10/7

Just received a great personalized rejection on the first fifty pages of my YA scifi/fantasy MS. She detailed exactly what worked for her and what didn't, and what she thought would help fix it. It was fantastic feedback, and despite the long wait time, Ms. Wekstein seems like a great, knowledgable agent and I would definitely query her again.
