Queried about 20 days before submissions closed. Forgot to follow up (as recommended after six weeks on Publisher's Marketplace) so will do that today. Not expecting a request but oh well, might as well try!

Does anyone have a follow up about whether she sends confirmation emails? I sent a submission in after a conference request, and I never received a confirmation. It’s only been a few weeks, so I’m afraid to nudge too soon.

Requested the full during a conference: 5/9/20
(Said she would accept pages after I finished polishing)

[from website] I'm seeking books in the picture book, middle grade, and young adult categories, including illustrated and graphic novel submissions. I'm particularly drawn to mysteries, fantasy, historical fiction, friendship stories, romance, magical realism, adventure, and books with humor--light or dark or both. As someone who is an environmentalist at heart, I would be happy to read submissions with an environmental element or streak. I would also love to see manuscripts from diverse and underrepresented authors and artists.

MG fairytale retelling

At least she was speedy!

I got a confirmation email in June so I'm pretty sure she still sends them.
Middle Grade humor that she requested at a conference.
I sent a "nudge" after 8 weeks because she was busy. I heard back within 3 hours of the nudge. She was very nice about it.
Got a polite rejection. They're so professional at Writer's House. Too bad they don't like my work!

KFThorsness I queried today as well and I believe it went through. Nothing bounced back but I did not receive a confirmation either. (from what I can tell, it doesn't appear she sends a confirmation email?)

My emailed query was bounced back. Has anyone had luck getting one through? (Wondering if she still has a filter from when she was closed or if it's an issue specific to me)
