@Tippett, he is listed but not on their submissions page, which is probably an indication that he is not taking queries. Thank you.

Patrick - FYI -- I just saw this today in the news:

Will Lippincott is leaving Lippincott Massie McQuilkin at the end of the year, writing that he is "eager to find new paths—in life, certainly, and in what I want to achieve professionally." He notes, "If there’s a through-line to my own narrative in publishing and media over twenty years it’s found in my love of great storytelling. This passion gives me purpose, and I’m ready to explore new ways of creating visibility for authors and causes." As of January 1, the agency will become Massie McQuilkin & Co.

From their website, new agent at this agency:
SHANNON O'NEILL (agent) graduated with honors from Dartmouth College and earned a Masters in Writing from Johns Hopkins. A native Washingtonian, Shannon still calls the capital home. One of her favorite haunts growing up was Politics and Prose, so it was little surprise when she found herself working as a bookseller and marketing manager for the landmark independent bookstore. She spent six years at The Sagalyn Agency as agent and editorial director working with leading thinkers, journalists, and bestselling writers. She is on the lookout for writing that informs, intrigues, or inspires: special interests include narrative nonfiction, popular science, current affairs, the history of ideas, and literary and upmarket fiction.

ER 04/3

Personalized response, address to me by name. Quick and efficient.
03/28/2011 12:09 PM
EQ 03/25/11 - Biography
ER 03/28/11 - Form letter, but it did say Dear MYFIRSTNAME, so that helps a little. If they only knew how we read each and every word they respond to us!

Queried on the 22nd; nearly instant standard rejections.

Took about 3 weeks for form rejection from Rachel Vogel although I sent query to Lippincott
Thank you for your recent query regarding representation, which we have now had an opportunity to consider. Unfortunately, I don't think our agency is going to be the right fit for your manuscript.

Tastes and areas of specialization vary widely from agent to agent. If you haven't already done so, you may wish to consult a directory such as Literary Marketplace (www.literarymarketplace.com) for the names of agents whose interests are more compatible with your talents. We wish you the best of luck in finding representation.
