When we take on a client we persevere until we find them the right publisher. We offer our authors candid editorial advice based on long experience, and in our negotiations we are realistic as well as firm in securing deals that work for all sides.

We have extensive experience of drawing up contracts for film, television, theatre, radio, and digital platforms, and our translation rights are handled by The Buckman Agency, a long-established company that is respected by foreign publishers all over the world.

In a changing landscape we embrace all opportunities to find the widest possible audience for our writers across all media.
