Closing To Queries March 1st

I will be closing to queries as of March 1st until August 1st to catch up with the slushpile. 
Mary C. Moore closing to submissions

Current query stats: All initial submissions have been responded to up to February 1st. If you queried before then and did not hear back, please resubmit via the form on my submissions page before March 1st.

During this hiatus I hope to respond to every full request of the 40 (+/- those that will trickle in while I’m closed) that are currently sitting in my to-read pile. I apologize to those who have been waiting since the end of November, and I appreciate your patience.

If I requested something from you at a conference, during #divpit or #pitmad, or WD Bootcamp, I will still consider your submission during this time. Use my email address that I gave you at the time to query.

Thank you all for your professionalism in this process.

    It would be very helpful if you noted on your 7 Literary Agents website that you are closed to submissions, and the time frame, since I just spent several hours of my own valuable time writing a query that met your standards and formatting the part of my manuscript you were willing to read.

      Hi Sharon, the 7 literary agents page is done by Writer’s Digest. I am not in charge of it, so I can’t change it, and they did that interview with me last fall. Agents often update their submissions, so it’s always a good idea to research their official website before submitting. Best of luck.
