Pitched agent in person at Minnesota Writing Workshop on 10/8/22. Agent seemed excited about pitch and requested full manuscript. Emailed full manuscript on 10/25/22. Never heard back. I'm thinking about sending a follow-up but assume this is a rejection.

*One of their agents, Eric Smith is accepting adult rom-com in 2023. Unfortunately, a 'no' for one agent is a 'no' for all.*

I sent a follow-up email, however, I am assuming this is a rejection. It is what it is. Good luck all!

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
