After 25 years as a literary agent, I launched Simon Trewin Creative Ltd in the Spring of 2019 to represent authors, brands and entrepreneurs in the areas of art, culture, digital, literature, and live events.
In the year I celebrated my silver jubilee as an agent and it seemed the perfect opportunity to hang my own name outside the door. I want a third act now that benefits from all the exposition and character development of the first two – expect thrills, spills, some familiar faces, lots of fun and some plot twists! This is also a chance to return to my roots in the entertainment industry and I am enjoying working on live events, theatre and film production part of the mix of my new endeavour.
I represent a group of authors who I would go to the wall for and they will always be my first priority but I am already also enjoying seeing what else is out there too. This is a challenging time in the marketplace but there are so many opportunities if one is open to knocking on unfamiliar doors – which I am.
I am partnering with the best agencies worldwide on a case-by-case basis to bring foreign, US and film/tv rights to the very forefront of the narrative.
Do be in touch on any front if you want to start a conversation.
During the Lockdown I am very much working full-time but I have a different postal address – email me if you need to send me something and I will let you know by return!
