Literary scout agency MSPT rebrands and moves to Second Home

MacLehose, Servadio & Pupo-Thompson (MSPT) Literary Scouting agency has changed its name and moved its offices to Second Home in London's Shoreditch. 

The agency, led by managing partner Rebecca Servadio since April this year, has been renamed London Literary Scouting to "reflect who we are and what we do".

The office has move from the Faber building to Second Home (pictured), which is a "a vibrant space to work in and suited our needs better going forward," the agency said. Second Home, a "utopian workspace” for creative companies, was opened in 2014 by Rohan Silva and Sam Aldenton. The company also opened "designer bookshop"  Libreria adjacent to it last year.

The changes follow original founder Koukla MacLehose's decision to specialise in French literature as a scout on the inside of and on behalf of London Literary Scouting. She will also provide occasional translations, according to a released statement. 

Yolanda Pupo-Thompson, based in Scotland, remains a full partner in the agency and principal reader. 

The London team is made up of Jessie Mendez Sayer, one of The Bookseller’s 2015 “Rising Stars”, who is responsible for YA and Spanish literature, and Sarah Pocklington.
