Details:

The Madeleine Milburn Literary Agency is running their six-month Mentorship Programme, offering all six spaces to writers from underrepresented backgrounds. This includes, but is not limited to, writers from an ethnic minority background, LGBTQ+ writers, writers who are disabled or neurodiverse, and writers from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

The programme will be split into two parts – the first part is a series of online insight sessions, given by editors, agents, international rights, film & tv, as well as bestselling authors. These sessions will take place over the course of six fixed months, and our mentees will gain valuable insight into the entire industry process, from pitch to publication, and everything in between. The second part of this programme will run concurrently with the first, but without a fixed time limit. Each mentee will be partnered with an MM literary agent mentor and will receive personalised editorial feedback on their manuscript. Each mentee will also receive guaranteed representation.

You do not have to have completed your manuscript to apply and they accept applications in a range of genres across fiction and non-fiction. This opportunity is open to writers around the world.

Applications close on July 31st at 5:30pm.
