Same form response for me (3 weeks after initial query, also from Julie Flanagan): "Thank you for your query. While Anna will not be taking on the project, we do wish you the best of luck finding passionate representation for your work."

Same note.
"I’m afraid that Anna is completely inundated with clients’ manuscripts at the moment and she is not taking on new clients. We wish you great luck finding passionate representation for your work.

All best wishes,

Julie Flanagan
Office of Anna Stein"

Stawgna- I agree. I queried her when she was closed back in January 2018 with my first manuscript. She asked to see it. Unfortunately, she rejected it (a very nice rejection). So I decided to query her again with my second MS in January 2019. That's when she told me she was too busy with her clients.

Agents sometimes say in rejection letters that they are too busy with current clients to take on new ones, when, in fact, they are open but use the line to gently reject someone. Is it possible that's what happened here? On second thought, scratch that. Nobody query her. Less competition!

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.
