Hi ____,


Thanks so much for your query, and for following up! I gave your sample a read, and though I really like the premise, I wasn’t quite hooked enough by the writing on a line level to feel like I’d be the best agent for you. In any case, wishing you the best of luck, and again, thank you for the opportunity to consider your work.

Best wishes,

Ayla

Dear __,

Thanks very much for giving me the chance to consider. I found your story intriguing, but I’m afraid ultimately I was not won over enough to think I’d be the right agent for it. But that is just one reader’s view, and I’m sure others will have a different sense of the possibilities. In any case I do appreciate having had the chance to consider your work, and wish you all success finding the right person to represent your literary interests.

Sincerely yours,

Ayla Zuraw-Friedland

do I add the first ten pages of my manuscript along with the query letter or not? My genre is poetry.
