Profile Summary

Our researchers believe that this agent is primarily interested in marketing and building on existing literary and cultural brands. Our researchers haven't found any evidence which suggests that Richard represents new authors and their books, and as suchwe do not recommend that debut writers submit their manuscript to him. This profile is included for clarity only.

Richard Scrivener set up the Creative Rights Agency in 2009. The agency represents literary properties and cultural brands such as the Ology, Day of Assassins, Horrible Histories, Horrible Science and Robot City. Richard aims to offer clients rights expertise in publishing, media and licensing.

Richard was previously a licensing consultant and board member at Templar Publishing. During his time there, he worked on TV licensing and helped Templar to launch their fiction list. Unfortunately, there is very limited information about Richard Scrivener online. Publishing industry articles suggest that the company has acquired the licensing rights for some powerful cultural brands. However, the agency website itself is really basic, offering nothing beyond an email and a telephone number, which is somewhat discouraging for potential clients.

We have tried to contact Richard to find out more about his company and his clients but to date we have not heard back from him. If any Agent Hunter subscribers are able to offer further information about Richard or the agency please do get in touch as we are always happy to update the site.
