Dear Author:

Thank you for your query letter. Please forgive this impersonal response but the large volume of mail we receive makes it impossible to send individual responses.

Unfortunately, the project you describe isn’t right for us, but we appreciate the chance to consider your work and wish you all the best in your endeavors.

Yours truly,

xxx Literary Agency

“Please forgive this impersonal response” – I would be quite happy to, IF I wasn’t the author. The keyword in the reject us “describe” – as they never even describe what I sent.
