Doesn't give out feedback when Asked for it. Gave gatekeeper response saying that "they don't provide feedback to authors not represented by VSA, as it would be simply prohibitive to our time."

The agency has one email for submissions, but I put the agent's name in the subject line, so that might have helped with the response time. Form response below:

Thank you for considering me as a possible fit to represent your book. I have reviewed your query and, at this time, I do not believe that I am the right agent to represent your work. Please know that we are extremely selective, even with the materials we review. I do appreciate you thinking of us as an agency, however, and I encourage you to continue your search for an agent who is just the right fit for you. I wish you every success in your publishing endeavors.
