*One of their agents, Eric Smith is accepting adult rom-com in 2023. Unfortunately, a 'no' for one agent is a 'no' for all.*

Pitched agent in person at Minnesota Writing Workshop on 10/8/22. Agent seemed excited about pitch and requested full manuscript. Emailed full manuscript on 10/25/22. Never heard back. I'm thinking about sending a follow-up but assume this is a rejection.

I sent a follow-up email, however, I am assuming this is a rejection. It is what it is. Good luck all!
