Emailed memoir query in Feb. 2019 when Chris was still with Foundry. I knew it was a long shot given the agency's size & location. Never received a response.

12/8 ER- Ouch! Well at least it was not a form letter.
"Thank you for your query. Unfortunately, the market for personal memoirs is increasingly difficult to enter, especially for first-time authors, who must set themselves apart with either a notable media platform or exceptional writing. I’m afraid I won’t be able to take this on for representation, but I wish you all the best finding the right agent and publisher for your work.
On Behalf of Chris Park, Sian-Ashleigh'

Query on 01/22/2014. Automated response: "Thank you for your query. Due to the high volume of queries we receive, we ask that you please allow several weeks to months for a response. Thank you for your patience."

That would indeed seem to require a lot of patience!

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
