The Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency is dedicated to selling the international translation rights for our authors as widely as possible. The agency has an extensive network of contacts around the world and prides itself on getting significant translation deals in multiple territories.
Each country is important to us as we want our authors to be international bestsellers. The International Book Fairs including the London Book Fair, Bologna Book Fair, Book Expo America and Frankfurt book fair are the main rights events in the calendar year, and all our submissions are carefully planned around these fairs to encourage as much interest as possible in the translation rights, UK & US rights and Film & TV.
