@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.

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?

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
