Dear David,

On behalf of the agents here at Bxxxx Axxxxxs, thank you for giving us the opportunity to consider your work.  Unfortunately, we do not feel strongly enough about your project to pursue it further.

As I am sure you can imagine, we receive a tremendous number of submissions, and we are forced to limit our focus to a select group of projects.  Agenting is very subjective, and even though we could not take on your project at this time, another agent might feel differently.

Please accept my best wishes for success in your writing career.


This phrase is the bomb –  “Agenting is very subjective.”
