Profile Summary

This agent is not currently accepting new submissions.

Stephen Edwards has held a Director position at RCW since 2003.  He represents translation rights for RCW authors and has worked at the agency since 1995.  There is very little information about Stephen in the public domain. As far as we are aware, he doesn’t use social media for work purposes and doesn’t give interviews.  His RCW profile page reveals the bare minimum of personal information – he is married and lives in London – sadly neither fact is terrifically helpful for prospective clients.  

Curiously, Stephen’s author page on the RCW website has been left completely blank, and this may well be because he only handles translation rights.  If he has an author list, we suspect that it is largely complete as his profile page states that he is no longer accepting new submissions. We do know that he used to represent critically acclaimed historian Orlando Figes, and our researchers believe that manuscripts on the topic of Art history might well catch his eye, as he has a BA in History of Art and an MA from the prestigious Courtauld Institute.  Beyond this our genre selections for this agent are largely guesswork. 

We are always keen to improve our profiles and have contacted Stephen to ask for further details about his client list and his current literary tastes and preferences.  In the meantime, if any Agent Hunter subscribers are able to provide more data we would be happy to hear from you. Watch this space.
