FQ: 05/01/2024
Rejected: 05/20/2024

Adult fantasy

Apparently, this is Ciara Smith's form rejection as several others posted in the comments:


Thank you for submitting your query for [Title] to Corvisiero Literary Agency and allowing me to consider it.

Even though I found many qualities in your work and loved the idea behind this story,I felt that the narrative relied heavily on "telling" and exposition at times. For that reason, I am not able to fully immerse myself in the story the way I had hoped in order to champion this project.

As you know, this industry is incredibly subjective, and I strongly encourage you to query other agents. One may even love your story just the way it is! Thank you again for providing me the opportunity to review your writing, and I hope that you will keep me in mind for future projects.

Best of luck,

Ciara Smith

It seems semi-personalized? idk maybe I'm grasping at straws here


Dear [My Name],

Thank you for submitting your query for [Title] to Corvisiero Literary Agency for our consideration.

Even though we found great qualities within your query and synopsis, we didn't feel as immersed in the story from reading the sample pages as we would need to be in order to champion the project.

We sincerely apologize for not having better news to share. Thank you again for providing us with the opportunity to review your writing. Keep honing your skills, learning about the industry, and always embracing a growth mindset. We wish you the best of luck finding an agent who will passionately represent your work!

Best of luck,

Huang Chen

Queried to Lisa Gouldy on QM via Marisa's form as instructed.

5/2 - 142k adult science fiction

5/18 - Some same form responses as previous rejections, but also helpful in terms of word count and exposition.

hile we found the premise to be interesting and enjoyed many qualities in your story, unfortunately we didn't feel as immersed in the story from reading the sample pages as we would need to be in order to champion the project. Please know this is just one opinion in a subjective industry, and what doesn't work for one agency could be perfect for another.

Q 5/2/24
polite rejection 5/6/24

Her assistant wrote an email that explained she loved the query and the protagonist's voice, but didn't like how the dialogue was all tell and no show. I feel a bit disappointed that this was judged from only the first chapter as that tends to set the stage for the rest of the story, but oh well. I greatly appreciate the personal feedback, knowing how rare it is to receive. Now... onto the next.
