Margot Edwards, Rights Consultant
Margot Edwards has spent her professional life as gamekeeper turned poacher and is now both at once! Starting at Anthony Sheil Associates, then moving to Hamish Hamilton where she began her love affair with children's books, and on to Hodder & Stoughton where she became rights director of the Children's Division. When Headline bought Hodder, and with a growing family, Margot started Margot Edwards Rights Consultancy, representing clients such as Peters Fraser & Dunlop Children's Books, Piccadilly Press, Templar fiction and Aitken Alexander children's books. As well as representing the BIA she also represents other UK agents and publishers throughout the world. She regularly attends Frankfurt, Bologna and London Book Fairs, in person when possible or virtually in covid-times.
