Literary agent Sam Copeland has been made a director at Rogers, Coleridge and White (RCW), effective immediately.
Copeland joined the company when Robinson Literary Agency merged with RCW in 2009, after first beginning his publishing career in 2001 with Curtis Brown.
Copeland, who represents writers of both literary and commercial fiction, all genre fiction, children's and some non-fiction, including Simon Mayo, was credited by RCW as "a wide-ranging and imaginative agent" with an impressive list of writers, and a "great team member".
"RCW looks forward to seeing him go from strength to strength," the company said.
Yesterday The Bookseller reported that Jo Unwin has opened a fully-independent literary agency after nearly three years of working in association with RCW.
