Unless their agency guidelines specifically state that a pass from one is a pass from all, you're free to query another agent post-rejection. I checked their website and didn't see anything, so I think you're good to go. :) Good luck!

Does anybody know if a Folio Jr. agent turns down your project if you can query another agent there? (I queried Emily Van Beek and she passed...wondering if I could query John.)
