I received a query response from another ICM (now CAA) agent today, so the ICM address emails are still getting to the agents.

ICM website is the most uselss self-indulgent website I have ever seen. When the web developer is done patting themself on the back they should be fired.

@Patrick - thank you. I agree with you about their websites. I'll continue with the query as planned, using ICM.

They seem to be going by either name still, and I've seen some refer to themselves as employees of "ICM/CAA" so I don't know what is going on with the name. Seeing how both agencies are notoriously tight lipped and have the most basic and unhelpful websites ever, we may never know. But since the names seem to be interchangeable at this stage I'm not going to change anything until more definitive information is revealed.

@Catlin22 Her Twitter profile (https://twitter.com/zosandler) has been updated to say she now works at CAA, so good catch -- you're correct. I guess all these old queries are DOA?

Hi all,
Does anyone know if Zoe Sandler has moved from ICM Partners to Creative Artists Agency (CAA)? Her LinkedIn profile shows that she moved this month but can't find anything to confirm that. The two companies merged last year and I'm not sure how to direct a query.

Came to look at comments a second time and apparently was so wrapped in trying to dig for her submission requirements on the website (they're on her MSWL, btw), I only paid attention to the genres listed as Ya and Fantasy and now see that she is not currently accepting those.

I sent a follow-up email however I'm assuming that it is a no response. If Zoe emails me later, edit this.

I queried 8/27/22 then nudged with an offer of rep about a week ago and today she very kindly let me know that she does not currently represent YA fantasy, so I thought I'd put that information out there in case it could be useful to anyone else.

Found an auto-response in my spam folder. "I am currently without childcare, so my email response time might be slower than usual. Thank you for your patience!"

Not sure what this means considering her website doesn't give an estimated response time in the first place.

I also received the auto reply.
Would this mean resending query after February or would sh just be playing catch up for awhile?

Auto reply to my email:
"Thank you for your email. I am currently on maternity leave, returning February 2022.
