@johannahgrace I had the same question and somebody messaged me to let me know you can now query multiple agents (obviously not at the same time)

I wonder if Root recently changed their policy about querying multiple agents. When querying my previous novel last year I made a note to only query Root as a whole agency, but now their website says authors can do that or query multiple individual agents (successively). Some of the old guidelines are still on agents' Publisher's Marketplace pages, though.

@aecullum
This comes from their submissions page near the bottom: "Please note that if you haven't received a response within the quoted turnaround, it means we're passing on the project, as the volume of queries we receive has made it difficult to respond to everyone in a timely manner. (If you have queried an agent directly rather than the agency-at-large, this means you are also free to submit to another agent at Root Literary once the stated consideration window has passed.)"

I can't quite figure out if we can query more than one agent at Root if the first declines. I think not because it says they pass it around internally regardless of which agent you specify. Does anyone have any more information?
