I work as an Agency Assistant at Greene & Heaton, assisting all of our agents and their authors, handling rights and media enquiries, contract negotiation and administration, and reading submissions.
I read broadly, but I mostly enjoy immersive, brilliantly plotted literary fiction. My favourite authors include Kiley Reid, Bernadine Evaristo, Elizabeth Strout, Sarah Waters, Lauren Groff, Zadie Smith, and Colson Whitehead.
I also enjoy personal and political narrative non-fiction and creative essay writing, especially by Carmen Maria Machado, Will Harris, Ross Gay, James Baldwin, and Joan Didion.
I like reading non-fiction by academics, critics and journalists who are writing their specialist subject for trade publication, like HOW TO DO NOTHING by Jenny Odell or QUEER INTENTIONS by Amelia Abraham. I love good food writing, be it recipe-led or otherwise (Rebecca May Johnson, Anthony Bourdain, MFK Fisher…).
Alisa Ahmed and I co-created and coordinate The Greene Door Project, an open submissions initiative for writers from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds.
I am actively seeking submissions.
