SP Agency

Boutique Literary Agency Offering Representation, Management, Editing and PR.

SP Agency now manages the poet and performer, Roger McGough for his shows and appearances.

His new show Alive & Gigging debuts February 2023 at theatres and festivals in the UK and overseas.

Roger McGough, ‘Living Proof of Himself,’ and President of the Poetry Society not only helped kickstart the musical careers of Bob Dylan and Jimi Hendrix, but inspired hundreds, if not thousands of young poets (Well, quite a few) on their poetic journeys.

85 years old and at that awkward age between birth and death, Roger puts on a brave face and takes to the stage with a show featuring new poems as well as old favourites. Expect an evening of wit and wordplay, joy and melancholy in equal measure.
