“Informative, insightful and fun. I would recommend any aspiring writer to pop along.”
Speechwriter for NATO Secretary General
September 21: Tristan Kendrick of RCW Literary Agency

Date: September 21, Time: 6-7pm
The live events are a friendly chat with a leading literary agent and Jacq Burns, so that we writers can get to the heart of what they are looking for in a manuscript and if they’d be a good agent to pitch to. Jacq then opens out to questions from the audience. For September we have a young, hungry agent whose client list is beguilingly not yet complete as he is just starting to build it: the ideal time to be taken on by an agent. More about Tristan and the agency:

RCW literary agents manage the careers of some of today’s most successful authors, and are widely regarded as one of the world’s leading literary agencies. They are home to writers across all genres including literary and commercial fiction, crime and thrillers, children’s and YA, and all forms of non-fiction.

The agency works with a number of major film and TV agents both in the UK and US who help to bring their authors’ books to screen. Their offices are in Notting Hill, in West London. Tristan Kendrick joined Rogers, Coleridge and White in February 2014 and started working in the Foreign Rights Department in 2015. He handles translation rights in twenty nine territories, both directly and with co-agents. The territories he works in directly include Brazil, Denmark, Finland, France, The Netherlands, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Sweden. He assists Laurence Laluyaux with the English language rights of her authors and is currently building his own list of clients.
