Kat Kahn sent me an email that not only proved she'd read ALL of my proposal but contained some of the best writing/editing advice I've EVER gotten.

Pitched Kat at a conference on Feb 5 where she requested 25 pages and gave me a link for bypassing her typical queue. I still did not receive a reply until June 20 and it was a typical form letter. I’m disappointed that I waited so long after a face to face meeting. Of course pitching doesn’t guarantee success by any means, but this felt completely worthless: waited just as long for a reply with zero feedback.

Kat judged the 1st Five Pages contest this last quarter. Not sure if she'll be the literary agent again for the next one, but another opportunity to get in front of her if she is!

Cited that the story is interesting and such a concept could work, but the transition and pacing "a bit jumpy." She invited me to query if I am still seeing representation in the future (presumably with a different ms).
