She posted on Twitter she will be open to queries once QM starts working. Her QM still is locked, so I assume it'll be soon.

6/1/22 - E Query
7/31/22 - Nudge after Twitter said she was caught up and invited nudges on outstanding queries.
8/1/22 - Response saying she had no record of my query (I doubled checked my sent box and it's there with the correct address), but she'd reply shortly to my query and pages that I resent with my nudge.
8/5/22 - Rejection

On Twitter: Jul 13
Dunham Literary will be closed to *unsolicited* queries from July 15th-Sept. 6th, 2022.
Have a referral, a conference code, or a pitch contest ?? (heart)? Those are solicited queries & you can still send one. Everyone else - hang onto your query till Sept!
