Hello all!

Was wondering if anyone knew anything about Morgan Knox from Pure Talent. I haven't been able to find anything about him online apart from a bare linked profile. He had a posting on the www.nmfilm.com website awhile back and he is looking to represent screenwriters. He's located in Santa Fe, NM. I'm thinking about submitting work to him, but wanted to find out if it was safe to do so.

Thanks

Apart from a few online listings, there's almost nothing to be found about Morgan Knox or his agency. This is never a good sign: a successful agent/agency should be more researchable.

Found this LinkedIn profile for Mr. Knox. His agency has only been around for 3 months, and apparently he worked in the hospitality industry prior to opening it. That's not really the kind of professional background you want to see in an agent.

With that background he'll probably treat you to a nice lunch, though. Even if he doesn't manage to sell your book.
