The Association of Authors’ Agents (AAA) is a British voluntary trade association whose members are all UK-based literary agencies. The Association of Authors’ Agents exists to provide:
- a forum which allows member agencies to discuss issues arising in our profession
- a collective voice for UK literary agencies in public affairs and the media
- a code of conduct to promote best practice amongst members
The literary agent’s role
Literary agents represent authors. Our members’ primary goal is to ensure that their clients receive the best possible terms in the sale of rights in their works. As an Association we are committed to assisting our members in giving the highest possible level of service to authors.
Promoting authors and their work
Authors represented by our members enjoy an exceptionally high profile around the world. Revenues from the sale of rights in their works comprise a significant part of the UK creative economy. The AAA’s members are devoted to promoting authors’ works in the domestic and global markets and to defending authors’ rights in the UK, abroad and online.
