I hesitated because of everyone else getting the auto email, but @maysolver inspired me! I shot my shot just in case on 5/13/24, since it's not on her website. Will keep y'all updated!

UPDATE: welp, it seems well and truly closed. Here's the reply I got (from Kelsey Day, not Nicole Aragi):

Thank you for querying us here at Aragi. Unfortunately, Nicole is simply not taking on any new clients at the moment. These days, her list is crammed full, and she’d hate to neglect any of her current clients.

Our apologies for the disappointing response, best of luck securing another agent.

Email Query on 4/4/24. Got the same form email others received about Nicole being closed to queries on 4/5/24.

I thought it might be worth a shot, given that the agency website doesn't indicate that she's closed to queries--and it does say another agent is closed. My guess is that they'd update the website if she were truly closed. (Otherwise, why waste everyone's time?) In other words, if the right query came along, she might act upon it. So I'm counting this as a rejection for my rejections poster. :)

@Tessa, It isn't on her website. It is based on the email replies reported by several authors here in the comments. If you query and do not get the "closed" reply, please let me know.

I didn't see that Nicole Aragi is closed to queries on the agency website?
