Full request after 52 days! I'm blown away - I'd marked her as a CNR. Geeking out though, as she represents one of my absolute favourite YA authors.

Kind and encouraging rejection on full, with no workable feedback. I've been getting a lot of these from fulls - it seems as though there's nothing major that needs improving. Apparently the book either isn't right for the marketplace in general, or for specific agents' lists/tastes. Which is quite heartbreaking - I'd feel much better if there was some sort of flaw I could fix in rewrites. Still got 9 fulls out, fingers crossed one of them connects.

Very quick turn around: Thank you for your recent query letter to Flannery Literary and please accept our apologies for this form letter, a response method we resort to in the interest of timeliness. Please be assured that the time we did not spend customizing a personal response was, instead, used to carefully consider your submission to determine if we could be helpful to you.

Good point @brit_the_bee and I think you're right.

Hmm, I wonder if the "invitation to submit more writing" refers to those times when an agent wants to see more work before signing you, i.e. when you query with one picture book and they ask to see any others right away before they'll sign you? As opposed to meaning "don't submit to us ever again?" I suspect it's the former.

Incredibly passive/aggressive form letter rejection. I don't mind a form rejection because I get the time suck. But I do mind an agent telling me to tell my parent/guardian they raised me well because I want to send a thank you. Also, I know better than to clog an agent's inbox with that. This whole letter is insulting to my professionalism.
