RR Scouting was established in 1996 by Rosalind Ramsay and is one of the UK’s leading literary scouting companies. RR Scouting covers UK and international publishing projects on behalf of foreign publishing houses and film and tv companies.
We read and report on manuscripts from publishers and agents and advise our clients on books and IP to acquire for translation in their own markets or adaptation for the screen.
We do not look at material from unpublished or unagented authors with a view to connecting them with UK publishers.
