Last week, I participated in the #DVPit pitch event on Twitter. One pitch in particular kind of blew up, so I'm spending my weekend sifting through all the requests (a good problem to have, I know!).
A handful of those requests were made by agents I've already queried and who have already passed. Should I consider re-querying any of them?
Now, for those who passed with a personal note, I'm assuming the answer is no - do not query again. They probably just didn't realize they'd already seen the pages.
But for those who sent a form reject or nothing at all, I'm wondering if it might be a good idea to re-send. Because maybe an intern sent the form reject and the agent never saw the query (and since it's via a pitch event, now it would get to them directly) and/or maybe I ended up lost in spam (on the no-response ones).
Perhaps that's wishful thinking. Would appreciate your sharky wisdom.
It's not your job to remind agents they passed on something.
If they request your work during a #DVPit, send it.
If you're a stickler, you can say "you saw this in March 1906 when I queried directly" but honestly, if they asked to see it, SEND IT.
And of course, the ones who didn't say anything at all, send! And no mention of previous queries.
