Stephanie took the time to write out a helpful rejection email with pointers on how to tighten up my first chapter. I appreciated her kind response and helpful feedback, even though it was ultimately a pass.

Although QueryTracker says that she is closed to queries, the Golden Wheat Literary Agency claims she is open. Fingers crossed that she actually is!

Sorry, Padler. It doesn't say anything on her website about being closed. But I updated her genres, in case that was the issue.

ER 6/9/20. Personal note that my premise was intriguing and my writing strong, but that she was closed to queries at this. Please update Querytracker!
