FR: 20 February, 2023 -- "Thank you so much for sending me your work. However, having considered it, I’m afraid that I don’t feel it’s right for my list. I trust you’ll understand that the extremely high volume of submissions I receive means that I’m not able to give more detailed feedback. I’m very sorry that this isn’t one for me, and I wish you the best of luck with other agents."
