Event description
A one-day course focusing on rights and how they can be negotiated and sold in book publishing.

About this event

The course will introduce the basic skills needed as a rights negotiator and will cover the most important parts of the role and how it works. Aimed at candidates from all backgrounds, this course is suitable for anyone looking to get their first job in rights or wanting to move into rights from another field. It would be also interesting for publishers looking at ways to maximize the rights potential of their books.

The following points will be covered, with both a theoretical overview and practical exercises:

- definition and structure of different types of rights deals

- structures of different deal types

- Contract points for negotiation

- Sales material

- Finding customers & relationship building

- key skills for rights selling

The course is taught by Rachel Pidcock. Rachel has over 20 years experience in rights selling, she started in rights at Victoria House Publishing (part of Reader's Digest) followed by eight years at Pinwheel, during which time she was International Sales Manager for the group formed by the acquisition of Andromeda Oxford and Gullane. In 2019, Rachel founded The Rights Solution, along with two other rights agents, offering a comprehensive, global rights service to small international publishers.
