    Yikes! Thanks for passing that on, I hadn't heard that. I just checked his Twitter -- not to be stalker-y, just wondering if he's posted any news or updates -- and he hasn't posted for about a week.

    Sorry jtrylch13, I'm new to this. What does 'EQ' mean?

    I'm with you -- assuming a pass.

    I would assume EQ = Electronic or Email Query

    I queried Peter Steinberg yesterday and got a request for a full today.

    As do my happy/nervous dance of joy and panic, I want to plug the Squaw Valley Writers' Conference, which I attended in 2013 and where I met Peter. Squaw has a huge commitment to supporting its attendees. The rule is that if you meet an agent there, you need only mention in the subject line "I met you at Squaw" and your query gets treated as though it were a referral (i.e., it goes to the top of the slush pile). It doesn't guarantee you rep, and I'm biting my nails now that I know he's going to read my whole manuscript, but it's so nice to see that promise being kept that I wanted to get the word out to my fellow AWers to consider attending the Squaw conference (which is one week in the summer every year).

    The other agent I met there was Michael Carlisle, and I'm going to query him today.

    I believe Stephen Barbara's moved to Inkwell. That might be why Foundry took him off the site.

    Anyone know if Hannah Brown Gordon should be addressed as Ms. Gordon, or as Ms. Brown-Gordon? Am I wrong to assume the former, since the names aren't hyphenated on the website?

    In my querying days, I addressed her as "Ms. Gordon." Like you, I assumed that if the name wasn't hyphenated, she must be using Brown as a middle name of sorts. Similarly, I always addressed my now-agent, Kate Schafer Testerman, as "Ms. Testerman," and it turns out that that's what she prefers (though she doesn't mind being called "Ms. Schafer Testerman," either).

    Good luck!

    Has anyone had any recent dealings with this agency or Jessica Regel in particular?

    I queried Claire Harris on #MSWL day and she requested 50 pages. I sent them. Her email is a Foundry email, and her bio says she is an editorial assistant, but she isn't listed on the agency website. Her facebook and linked also say she is an editorial assistant, and a few job posting foundry had posted for interns listed her as the contact person. I'm guessing she does actually work for them, and that she is starting to build her own list. Does this seem like a fair assumption? Does anyone know anything else about her?

    Any advice about what I should do if she does request more material?

    I also noticed other agents at foundry were retweeting her #MSWL tweets, which was why I queried to begin with. It was after that I realized she wasn't listed as an agent on their site.

    If she did ask for more material, would it be rude to just ask if she was just starting to build a list or working with one of the agents?

    Wait until you get an offer of rep to ask those questions, but do ask them then. It isn't unreasonable at all to want to know if someone who is brand new is being mentored on the job. After all, agenting requires contacts. Often new agents at reputable houses are a good group of people to query. They won't be too busy for you and they will have support. It's a good sign that the other agents are retweeting.

    Thank you! That makes me feel better! I'll wait and see what happens before I go asking questions or worrying anymore.
