About MBA

In 1971 Diana Tyler and Michael Bakewell formed MBA Literary Agents Ltd to promote the work of writers for television, radio, film and theatre, the media in which they both worked following a period in BBC drama departments.


The agency flourished through their excellent contacts and soon expanded into fiction, non-fiction and children’s.


Michael left the firm in 1974 but steady growth under managing director Diana Tyler has enabled a wide range of writers in all fields, more recently including children's books, to work on cross-media projects.


MBA's ethos is exemplified by the absolute commitment of all members of the agency to nurturing and building long-term successful careers for each client
