Thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to read your submission. We appreciate you considering us for representation of your work.
Unfortunately, after careful review, we have decided that the Bradford Literary Agency might not be the right agency for this project. This industry is incredibly subjective, and there are many agencies out there with many different tastes. It is for this reason that we strongly encourage you to keep submitting elsewhere, in the hopes of finding an agent who will be an enthusiastic champion for you and your work.
We wish you all the very best of luck and success with your writing.
