I have used four email addresses in the agency's online submission form, but in each case the message has bounced back as
"spam." I called the agency seeking assistance and was told "try again, it should work now." It does not.

FR: 5/20/16, from his assistant Sarah Perillo. She's building her own list, and she seems very lovely and super professional! Can't wait to hear back from her :)

Does anyone know if we are supposed to only send a query letter? I'm assuming that's the case given the lack of summision information.
