Thank you very much for your email. For all writers, this is to acknowledge receipt of your work.

We personally read everything that comes into the MM Agency and will respond directly within the next twelve weeks if we are considering representation.

If other agents have requested your complete manuscript or you have an offer of representation, please alert us via this email (childrens@madeleinemilburn.com). You should include the title of your submission, the agent you sent it to and the date you did so.

If you have not heard from us within twelve weeks, please take this to mean that we are no longer considering representation. Regrettably, we do not have the time to respond individually to each submission due to the sheer volume that the agency receives and the necessity of fulfilling our obligations to our existing clients. Please do not call the agency. If you do not receive a response, please do not be downhearted. We receive a lot of very strong material but have to feel incredibly passionate about it from the moment we start reading in order to champion it effectively. This makes it a very personal decision, and one which might well differ from other agents.

Many thanks for sending us your work, and we look forward to reading it.

With our best wishes,

Everyone at the MM Agency

I ended up not going with Chloe. She’d been nice and enthusiastic during the call, but conferring with a few other writers who had unsuccessful partnerships with her left me with some doubts. So I had to go with an agent I felt more confident about!

I submitted through the form on their website (YA) and did not get a confirmation email. I followed up a couple of days later with an email, and got a response that they could not find my submission and to resubmit by replying to the email. So if you haven't gotten the confirmation after submitting through the website, you might want to check that your query went through.

Good luck!

Did not get the confirmation email from the YA form on their site. Hope it went through.

Always verify agent's information before sending your query, and review the agent's website(s) for more up-to-date information.

Though we do our best, QueryTracker can not guarantee the accuracy of any information provided.

An agent listing on QueryTracker is not an endorsement or recommendation of that agent by QueryTracker.

Before contacting an agent, authors should verify and assess the agent's requirements and suitability by visiting the agent's website(s), and becoming familiar with ways to spot and avoid bad agents. A good place to start is Writers Beware, a watch group that helps inform and protect authors from shady practices.
