The session will be chaired by Hannah Sheppard, creative director at IPR License and cover a range of topics from outlining how book rights work and how deals are done through to what kind of books work in international markets and how authors can capitalise on the potentially lucrative rights marketplace. There will also be a Q&A for attendees to pose a range of questions.

Hannah Sheppard, Creative Director at IPR License, commented: "The sales of international and subsidiary rights make up a large proportion of a book's income for publishing houses yet most writers will only consider being published in their own country or language and few fully understand how their rights work and, as importantly, how to monetise them.
"Our 'Getting to grips with book rights' event will help all types of authors, whether aiming to be traditionally published, self-published or publish independently, to have a better understanding of the rights arena and maximise the potential value of their work."
