Heleah, Wendi shared that she's still trying to figure out how to fit query reading into her schedule now that she's reopened.

Has anyone else received a response since she reopened? I queried on the 11th of Nov but haven't heard anything yet

Very kind note with some feedback about the voice and an invitation to query again if I choose to revise.

Wendi values emotional stories filled with lyricism and heart. She is drawn toward books that help dismantle stereotypes about mental health, ability, and race. As the daughter of immigrants, she sees special importance in stories about migration and displacement, especially as they relate to friendship and family.

In February, I decided to revise based on editorial feedback, and she was happy to wait for the revised.
Revised Full Sent: 04/01
Nudged with offer of rep: 04/08
Best step-aside EVER: 04/22

Wendi is so enthusiastic and personable! She knew I had five offers of rep on the table, and even though she stepped aside because other commitments didn't allow her to schedule a call in time for my deadline to discuss revisions she had in mind, she read my story and sent the most encouraging, congratulatory step-aside email. Although she didn't offer, every interaction with her was pleasant and positive. Totally recommend querying her!

Kindest rejection you could ask for. I highly recommend querying Wendi if you fit her list. She's absolutely lovely.
