wowza19, I suggest you politely nudge, and if you get a rejection, ask if you can submit to another agent at the agency. I received a rejection today from a different agency, and the response stated "*we* [my emphasis] are not wholeheartedly connecting with your *we* should step aside." The general understanding of use of the pronoun "we" in a rejection letter is that the entire agency - not just the agent - is rejecting the work and you shouldn't resubmit to another agent at the agency. HOWEVER, I took the chance to reply and ask if this was truly the case. The agent's assistant replied immediately, saying I was "very welcome to try another agent" at the agency. Please note, this was not Sterling Lord Literistic I had this exchange with; their protocol might be different. But my point is it never hurts to politely ask. The worst that can happen is you'll be rejected, which is a self-fulfilling prophesy if you just give up. Good luck!

Is this agency a "no from one is a no from all?" Don't know how to interpret their submission guidelines of "please select only one agent." Is that one agent at a time, or only one, ever? I have a CNR from Stewart and I"d like to query someone else.
