Course Description

This course provides an in-depth introduction to literary rights management - from building a list of authors to negotiating the rights to novels and non-fiction works - from the perspective of a rights manager or literary agent. Topics include subsidiary rights such as film, television, and translation rights, working with subagents and literary scouts, the differences between selling rights for adult and children's books, and how to make the most of international fairs.

Notes

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.

Students with equivalent experience may be admitted by the permission of the coordinators.
