Our very own Director of Children’s & YA, Chloe Seager has been shortlisted for Literary Agent of the Year at the British Book Awards 2024!

The Bookseller shares that “Chloe Seager of the Madeleine Milburn agency piloted a wide range of children’s and YA authors to success in 2023, including bestselling Katie Kirby and multi-award-winning Danielle Jawando. Authors revere her and publishers value her collegiate approach. “Chloe’s quick, funny, astute and fierce – all the ingredients required to be the very best of agents,” said one.”

Chloe joined the MM Agency in 2019 from Northbank Talent where she spent four years building a Children’s and YA list from scratch, selling rights in the UK, US and internationally. She’s also an author of multiple YA and MG books, with her adult debut recently published in February 2024.

Winners will be announced at The British Book Awards 2024 on May 13th.

Congratulations Chloe! We’re so proud of your extraordinary achievement. See the full shortlist here.
