Sic transit slush

Dear Miss Snark,

I just found out that an agent I sent a query to last week has just moved to a new agency. What happens to the queries in her slush pile? Do they move with the agent, stay with the original agency, or simply discarded?

Here's my guess on what I should do: wait three months; if I get no response, query the agent at their new agency. Am I right?

It doesn't matter what they do with those queries. You resend yours to the agent at her new home. Even if she packed up her entire slush pile and bicycled it over in a pedicab, it's still in a box someplace. Your fresh new letter, crisply addressed to the bright shining new job will be on her desk. It makes you look briskly efficient too.
