About the Event

Presented by the British Council and The Art X Company, the first event of the year-long International Publishing Fellowship is designed as a Masterclass and will respond to the challenges emerging from the knowledge gap in rights acquisitions of titles from India and the UK.


Date: 30 June 2022 

Time: 6 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. IST / 1:30 - 3:00 p.m. BST

Duration: 90 minutes

Tickets: INR 499 / GBP 5


ABOUT THE SESSION


One of the challenges identified early in the ‘India Publishing and Literature Sector Study' (2021) was the lack of training in the area of rights acquisitions for international writers and translations, especially in India where there is no formal training available for this sector. The context and processes of rights acquisition and licensing vary in formality across India and the UK, coupled with limited knowledge, networks and access to databases of translated works available for rights acquisition of international titles. 


Led by Arpita Das and Sussana Nicklin, this session will foreground copyright laws, essential steps in rights selling, various aspects of rights acquisition and share pathways to learning and honing related skills: 


  • The legal processes involved in acquiring and licencing a translation — contract negotiation, laws and regulations, royalties and payments, and related legal issues
  • Scouting and contacting international agents, international publishing houses, and building networks 
  • Different modalities, platforms and methods of acquiring rights — book fairs, personal contacts, visits to publishing houses, and networking events among others.
