The Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV & Film Agency is a leading literary agency based in the UK. The agency represents award-winning and bestselling authors of adult and children’s fiction and non-fiction who consistently feature on The Sunday Times, New York Times and international bestseller lists. The Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency is renowned for talent spotting new writers, negotiating major deals across all media including print, digital, translation and Film & TV, and turning books into bestsellers.
In 2018, Madeleine won Literary Agent of the Year at the British Book Awards. She was praised for her ‘prolific deal-making‘ and ‘long-term vision for her authors‘. She is known by editors as a ‘tenacious negotiator and an excellent collaborator with a nose for commercial success‘.
In 2020, Madeleine was shortlisted for Literary Agent of the Year, and Rights Director Liane-Lousie Smith was shortlisteds for Rights Professional of the Year at the British Book Awards.
That same year, the Agency moved to The Factory, a large converted warehouse in Clapham. The Factory is both an inspiring place of work, but also an event space for our authors and colleagues within the industry, and it is quickly becoming known as a hotbed of ideas and creativity.
The agency, now in its eighth year and with five other full-time agents, a thriving international rights department and two in-house editors, has been described by The Bookseller as 'a major force in publishing'.
As a member of the Association of Authors’ Agents (AAA), the Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency is committed to giving the highest possible level of service to authors.
