Writers House has a stellar history in the licensing of books to overseas publishers. We have had our own booth at the Frankfurt Book Fair for 35 of the 37 years we've been in business. And we are regular participants at the Bologna and London Book Fairs. We work with co-agents in every country that publishes translations of English language books, many of whom we've been doing business with for over two decades.
The department is run by Director of Subsidiary Rights Maja Nikolic, who has been with us for over 20 years, and the Director of Children’s Subsidiary Rights, Cecilia de la Campa.
In April 2008, we opened Writers House UK, a London-based office run by Angharad Kowal, dedicated to selling and supporting our Authors directly in the United Kingdom, British Commonwealth, Australia, and New Zealand. Additionally, Angharad is now actively looking to expand her representation of UK authors.
