The 2022 MM Mentorship is now open! Six talented writers from underrepresented backgrounds will receive industry insights, editorial guidance and guaranteed representation. Open to applicants worldwide.
This six-month writing mentorship for aspiring authors 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, and they cannot wait for a new batch of talented writers to join their tight-knit MM community.
“Based in the UK, the MM Agency was founded in 2012 and is known for launching debut authors’ careers by negotiating significant deals in the UK, US, international markets, and Film & TV, with close ties to publishers and producers all around the world. The agency has handled the careers of multiple bestselling authors across different genres, including international phenomenon Gail Honeyman (Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine); Sunday Times bestsellers Elizabeth Macneal and C.J. Tudor; New York Times bestsellers Ashley Audrain, Katherine May, Clare Pooley, the No. 1 and No. 2 New York Times bestsellers Nita Prose and Charmaine Wilkerson, and many more. Madeleine Milburn was Literary Agent of the Year in 2018, and was shortlisted in 2020, the same year our Rights Director Liane-Louise Smith was shortlisted for Rights Professional of the Year”
Now in its third year, the 2022 MM Mentorship Programme has grown in its commitment to reach even more diverse candidates. They are offering six spaces on their mentorship scheme this year, and for the first time, all six places will be reserved to those 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.
