Perhaps we’re getting messed up with the terms – “tailored” being different, IMO, from “edited”. Tailored to me means writing to please the agent, making changes simply because the agent says to; editing means working with the agent to make your book better, and not making changes you strongly disagree with just to please the agent. Under those definitions, I would never tell a writer to “tailor” their stories to a particular agent or publisher, but they do need to be willing to work with them on editing.
