Dear Author:

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your work. Unfortunately, we do not feel enthusiastic enough about the project to be able to pursue it further.

As I'm sure you can imagine, we receive a tremendous number of submissions on a daily basis and are forced to limit our focus. Agenting is a very subjective business and, even though we could not take on your project at this time, another agent might feel differently.

Please forgive this rather impersonal response, but we would prefer that you know our feelings as soon as possible rather than leaving you to wait for a personal letter.

Our best wishes for success in your writing career.

Yours sincerely,
Madeleine Morel

Please forgive this rather impersonal response, but we would prefer that you know our feelings as soon as possible rather than leaving you to wait for a personal letter.

Because an impersonal 'buzz off' is always so much better than a personal 'get lost'.

O_o

You gotta love these folks.
