    Irene Skolnick Literary Agency

    Greetings to all on this frosty (here, at least) evening. I was wondering if anyone had experience dealing with this agency, and Erin Harris? Searching around I couldn't find anything - I think their website (http://skolnickagency.com/) is quite new as well, so their web presence, at least, may be quite new. But surely the wonder of AbsoluteWrite can't fail me...

    Erin Harris has my full.

    I have little to add other than that.

    She has had it about six weeks. No word yet on rejection, acceptance, revision, etc.

    Anyone know Erin's response time for partial's? Getting close to two months and I'm wondering if I should send her an email.

    Erin Harris moves to Folio

    From today's Publishers Lunch:

    Erin Harris has moved from the Irene Skolnick Literary Agency to Folio Literary Management, where she will continue to work with existing clients and focus on growing the agency's fiction list, in addition to representing YA and select narrative non-fiction titles.

    Has everyone jumped ship from Skolnick? The website only lists Irene as an active agent:

    If everyone's jumped ship, take it as a bad sign.

    In '14, entered an arrangement with LMQ (who's handled her foreign rights since '09) to take over back-office operations. I wager the agency is winding down.
