Rachel Yeoh and Maddy Belton step up at Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV & Film Agency – Thursday February 29, 2024

The Madeleine Milburn Literary, TV & Film Agency has promoted Rachel Yeoh and Maddy Belton to literary agents.

Yeoh joined MMA in 2019 as an intern, before becoming Madeleine Milburn’s assistant, and then – in 2021 – an associate agent. She is building a list of literary, upmarket and book club fiction. 

Madeleine Milburn said: “Rachel is phenomenal member of the MMA team. She gives her all to everything that she does – and she does so much! As well as helping with my list, she has excelled in her approach to building her own by bringing exciting new talent into the agency and striking deals with major publishers, dynamic in her leadership of our mentorship programme, and infinitely generous in collaborating with colleagues. I’m so excited to see her continue all of these qualities now that she is a literary agent.” 

Yeoh said: “I have learned so much from working closely with Madeleine over the past four and a half years, and feel incredibly privileged. I’m so excited to see what the future holds, and cannot wait to continue championing my remarkable authors and finding promising new talent."
