Session: Increase Your Author Income Through Translation Rights Licensing
The program’s aim is to help a group of indie authors to set up to properly pitch translation rights at London Book Fair 2020, with the hope those meetings and potential deals lead to the sale of translation rights.
A panel of experts have been meeting with the authors every four weeks in the run up to the London Book Fair. Between sessions, the authors have been working independently to prepare their rights guides, pitching materials and set up meetings and proposals.
This sessions will conclude the program, as we find out how the authors did and the pathways they've chosen to take.
