This is probably a weird question, but does anyone know what the agency wants when they request a ‘detailed description’ for fiction submissions? Is this supposed to be part of the query letter or something separate?

4/13 - sent query via referral. requested full same day
4/21 - nudge w offer
4/27 - setup call
4/29 - offer of rep

just want to add a note that I ultimately did not go with him, but I think Kirby is a stellar human and any person would be lucky to have him as an agent, and I'd absolutely recommend querying him if his list speaks to you.
