    I thought she had left agenting when she left Andrea Brown in 2008, so I used the search function too look around and found this thread:

    You might want to read it (it's not long) and then you'll find a link to her new agency, assuming she's still there.

    good luck.

    Just found this thread. Michelle Andelman is my agent (we signed in May) and I completely adore her. She's partial towards YA on the more literary side of the spectrum, if that helps anyone

    I don't know if she is a no-response agent or not. I sent her a query with first 10 pages end of 9/09 and have heard nothing. Anybody else hear anything?

    She's a non-responder... Sent her stuff over the summer and never heard a peep.

    Michelle is AMAZINGLY professional and very detailed with her feedback. I e-queried her on 9/26, but did not hear back from her. I found this odd because I previously e-queried her in April and received a request for a full 9 days later. So...I re-queried her on 10/29 and she followed up within a few hours, explaining she was out of the office for a bit attending a book fair and a brief vacation. She requested my full the same day. While she rejected my full submission in May, she replied with the BEST feedback I've ever received from an agent. The turn-around time was very good as well (June). Michelle definitely takes her job very seriously and really immerses herself into your writing and the characters. She's great and I'm hoping I'll hear positive things from her soon--as in an offer of represenation. Good luck to all of you as well!

    I e-queried her last Wednesday and I haven't heard anything... I hear she responds pretty quickly so I should probably put her in the 'no' column pretty soon.

    Hey guys,

    So to what address have you been e-querying her because last May she requested to see some of my stuff after meeting her at a conference and her email NEVER worked. It just kept bouncing back. I tried it from multiple accounts, triple-checked the email and everything...

    Queried 6/06 but didn't get an automated response until today. Nice to know they got it, though.

    I have a partial out with Ms. Janczuk right now. She is quite approachable and honest. She was a participant in WriteOnCon for the last two years.

    Her (Weronika) response time is 3-4 weeks. I received an R on the partial but with some VERY helpful comments. I will definitely query her in the future because she is quite the classy gal. V. nice. Though everyone should know she has moved to a system of "no response" means "no" because she is inundated with queries.

    She does have an automated response, though, and says to re-query if you don't receive it in 36 hours.
    People on the outside think there's something magical about writing,
    that you go up in the attic at midnight and cast the bones and
    come down in the morning with a story, but it isn't like that.
    You sit in back of the typewriter and you work,
    and that's all there is to it.

    Weronika has my full right now. She replied to me SO quickly after my initial query and after I sent her the partial (like, less than a day for each one), but I haven't heard anything since I sent the full. At any rate, I'm looking forward to hearing back from her (an offer of rep would of course be awesome, but I'd also appreciate an R&R or a rejection with crit)!

    I sent a query to Weronika on 4-6; received a response on the seventh stating she would no longer send out rejections. She pledges to read all queries within 9 weeks of receipt, but 'No word' now means 'No.'

    Personalized rejection on the full yesterday, but Weronika's comments were so nice that it doesn't feel like a rejection at all! She didn't even have critique to offer: basically, she thinks it has all the right stuff and was great fun, but she didn't love it so much it hurts, which is what she needs in order to offer rep. She also said she'd be very happy to look at any future manuscripts.

    I know I ought to be disappointed...but I'm just so pleased.
