Permission Queries

If you wish to quote from our clients’ work you must apply for formal permission to do so using the form below. Before doing anything, we suggest that you determine or not whether a publisher handles permissions for a work, or if the agency does. If the source work is a book and in print, it is likely the publisher does; if the source work is an article, it is likely the agency does.

We respond to permission requests as quickly as we can but the volume of requests we receive is such that we may not be able to give you an immediate response. If you have a deadline to meet, you should therefore make sure you apply in good time. Please be aware permission requests can take up to several weeks to be answered.

If we do not handle the quotation rights in the extract you wish to use, we will do our best to let you know who the copyright holder is as soon as possible.

The level of fee will vary depending on a number of factors, including:

  • the edition
  • length of material
  • territory in which to publish
  • size of print run

Payment should be made on publication of the work in which the quotation appears.

Amateur Stage/Reading Rights

  •  Author and title of work

  • Ticket price
  •  Full contact details

NB Please do not assume that the rights will be available for licensing.
