October 19: Oliva Maidment of Madeleine Milburn Agency

Date: October 19, Time: 6-7pm

The live Zoom events are a friendly chat with a leading literary agent and Jacq Burns. For October we have Liv Maidment who is actively looking for literary and upmarket fiction.

Known for launching authors’ careers, the MM agency is always looking for new writers for whom to negotiate significant deals in the UK, US and foreign markets. They have close ties with publishers around the world, and work directly, or in partnership with film agents in London and LA, to option Film & TV rights to leading production companies and film studios.

The agency works with authors across all genres, and have had notable successes in upmarket fiction including crime, book club and psychological suspense. They also handle children’s books, teen, young adult, New Adult and cross-over fiction, as well as exciting new non-fiction authors with a focus on narrative non-fiction, history, self-help, memoir and biography.

Members will automatically receive a link on the day of the event.
