It seems she's no longer working as a literary agent.

Does anyone know what happened? She was requesting materials as of two months ago. Not seeing anything on the mainstream so far. Edit: Thank you, MindiWM.

Thank you for taking the time to query me. I am no longer accepting submissions, as I have made the difficult decision to leave agenting. Please do feel free to share your query with one of my wonderful colleagues at I wish you all the best as you continue to write and seek representation!

submitted email query June 17
Average positive response is shown as 2 days and longest 13 days so I guess after 32 days it's a CNR

I just want to reiterate that everyone should query this agent if she reps what you write. She's so fast! And although I got a rejection, her feedback was actionable and so incredibly helpful! She sent me paragraphs!! She clearly read and carefully considered my work. Maggie is kind and professional. Anyone would be lucky to land her as an agent. :)
Query her and, at the very least, you'll get some incredibly personalized and wonderful feedback.

She requested a full within a day and rejected my full in 19 days which is super fast for a full! I appreciated that. Like everyone else said, she gives some specific feedback when she rejects your full which is very generous. I appreciated that she didn't give a form rejection. She seems like a lovely person to work with and I recommend querying her.

Email query: 3/17
Full request (!!): 3/19 (This is my first request for a full, so I'm excited!)
Rejection with detailed, helpful feedback: 3/26

And I just want to reiterate what others have said and say that my interactions with her have been wonderful. She provides really specific and actionable feedback and has been kind and prompt throughout. She even said I could resubmit if I revised the novel and addressed the issues she had. She seems like a great agent.
