Event description

Buying and Selling rights in children’s books is crucial for publishing success. In addition to the important revenue streams, it provides access to markets unattainable for the original edition, as well as to new platforms and media, extending brand and author identity.

This half-day training event will ensure that you understand the cornerstone of copyright, and the essential steps of rights selling, whether you are starting off, or considering a career in rights; are in your first year or two and wish to consolidate the basics; you work in contracts or related areas, or you are a self-published children’s author.  It will consider thoroughly those all-important essentials: copyright, rights, contracts, and how to start selling - all with a sharp focus on children’s IP.

The training will be delivered by children’s rights experts with proven experience in selling rights and licensing for children’s books across many territories and markets.
