The Madeleine Milburn Mentorship Programme

The Madeleine Milburn Mentorship Programme is currently closed. 

The Madeleine Milburn Mentorship Programme is a six-month writing mentorship for aspiring authors, and was established in 2020 as part of the agency’s commitment to champion new and exciting voices around the world and launch debut writing careers.

 

 

We have now selected our 2022 mentees! You can read more about them here.

 

AN UPDATE ON OUR ALUMNI

We are so proud of how far our mentees have all come. The landmark women’s fiction debut Love & Other Dramas by Ronali Collings was acquired by Bonnier Books, while the psychological thriller The Call of Cassandra Rose by Sophia Spiers was snapped up by Lume Books for an autumn 2022 publication. Sophie Jo’s addictive teen fiction debut The Nicest Girl was sold to UCLan books, and Nigar Alam has seen her historical literary fiction debut Under the Tamarind Tree acquired for an exciting mid-2023 publication with Putnam and Bedford Square Publishers. Last but certainly not least, we are over the moon to announce that Wild Geese by Soula Emmanuel was published by the pioneering new literary imprint of Bonnier Books, Footnote Press, as its very first fiction lead.

It has been wonderful seeing what our alumni have achieved since the mentorship, and we look forward to seeing them continue on in their writing journeys.
