Re my last comment: judging by the QT forum, it looks like “submission history” most likely means to publishers, which makes sense.

Their website says to include “submission history” in your query. Does anyone know what, exactly, they’re wanting here? I could say that I sent out a batch of queries a few months ago and got some requests and that I’m sending out another batch and have one request so far, but that seems a bit general. Or do they mean submissions to publishers? Giving out the names of agents who have requested submissions feels a bit intrusive to me, but publishers I can understand. Thanks!
