Like the others mentioned here, I got a rejection with resources at the bottom. So if you got this, don't take it as a sign that you can't write a query or your pages need work -- it's just something she seems to add to every reject.

"I'm sorry to say that the project isn't a good match for me or my purpose for opening to marginalized writers at this time. If I’m incorrect on the latter, I apologize." She judged me on something and admitted she didn't know if she was correct or not. And from what I read, she is incorrect. The standard 'no thanks' would have been sufficient - ha! But dang, she seems to watch QueryTracker like a hawk.
