View Full Version : Querying Multiple Agents In Same Agency?

I was noticing that several agents within one agency might be a good person to send my query to once I have it written and the draft ready to go.

But should you only query one of them? Or can you query multiple? Or is it a good idea to wait and see how your first query batch goes?

Most agencies have a "one at a time" policy, because they don't compete with each other in-house. With those you wait until you've heard from one, and if they reject the MS, you can resend to another agent.

Others have a "No from one = no from all" policy, which means you don't query another agent there, period.

Read the agency guidelines.

Alright, I wasn't sure what the general consensus was. I'll keep that in mind, though for when it doesn't specify. Thank you!
