Hello!

Anyone have information on sales, a client list, etc etc. on Richard Knapp of Knapp Talent and Literary LLC? He's an agent formerly with William Morris and ICM.

I was wondering if anyone has information about past clients, track record, anything like that, which agent he worked under at ICM, stuff like that, for one Richard Knapp. Thanks!

BTW, it's Knapp Talent and Literary LLC (hope that doesn't sound too nitpicky).

Here's the agency's Agent Query page:

http://www.agentquery.com/agent.aspx?agentid=678

Looks like he worked at ICM and William Morris before opening up his own shop this year.

Hmm...reps fantasy...I'll have to remember that when I start querying. :)

Mods, there's also a thread on Knapp Literary (the agency as a whole). Should these 2 threads be merged?

Just wondering'.

Queried in June, then inquired about its status in September. Nothing so far.

Thanks for the reply. Just wondering how people word their query status emails. I have had a couple I checked on and basically said the original query date and thought I should resubmit. Most give you guidelines as to whether they only reply if interested or if you should re-query after a certain time period. But a few don't.

Richard Knapp agency

When I found him as a possible agent, he was with the William Morris Agency. In Jan.2008 he opened his own agency. P&E doesn't have a $ next to his name but that could be because he is new in his agency. Has anyone here had any dealings with him? I went through the index here, but he is not listed yet. He represents memoirs but I wonder why he left William Morris, if anyone knows anything it would be appreciated....

He requested a partial in mid May of 08, and I haven't heard from him since. Seems no one has.

He was with ICM and William Morris before striking out on his own.


Here's his linkedin page. According to that he was an assistant at ICM and a trainee at William Morris. And before that he was "principal" at Metropol Literary. A seemingly odd progression.

His AQ page is gone, and although he still lists KTL on his LinkedIn page, his primary title is "Bar Tender", so ....
