No response after three weeks, and according to the lit agency website that’s a rejection. I appreciate his consideration, however.

I attached the entire MS (5MB) and immediately received an automated confirmation. Good for you getting a full request. Their turnaround time is pretty fast.

@nestorid I sent my query and the first fifteen pages, received a full request, so you can’t go wrong sending first 10-15 I imagine.

So... I can't for the life of me figure out the guidelines for this one. "Please send your query letter, proposal, and/or manuscript to submissions@neonliterary.com." Surely we're not supposed to send the full (fiction) manuscript... are we?

The website says they respond within three weeks. Since my query is 28 days old, I'll assume they are passing.

"Anna Sproul-Latimer and Kent Wolf have joined to launch Neon Literary, with offices in New York and Washington, DC."

He has a new submission email in his twitter profile: kent@neonliterary.com, but no guidelines or instructions for people who recently queried him at Friedrich.

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.
