Elias Greig joins JdM!


Agent Danielle Binks has signed Elias Greig to the agency!

Elias teaches and researches literature—before that, he sold books, and before that, shoes. He is co-editor of ‘Short Takes on Long Views,’ a book series forthcoming from Routledge, and his bookseller’s memoir, ‘I Can’t Remember the Title but the Cover is Blue’ (Allen & Unwin, 2018), is available in all good bookshops and some bad ones. He rents on Gumbaynggirr country.

Here’s what Elias has to say about joining the agency; “I’m thrilled, awed, and humbled to be joining JdM’s diverse and brilliant list of writers and illustrators. To be given the opportunity to take my own work seriously, to value it beyond the pleasure I get from making it, is truly invaluable – as is the opportunity to work in partnership with Danielle Binks, drawing on her expertise as a reader, writer, and agent, and the courage of her example as an advocate. I can’t wait to see what we’ll do!”

For her part, Danielle says; “I’d been following Elias on Twitter for a while, where he often makes me feel a little more sane and seen for his articulations and screams about goings on in the world. His Overland Magazine writing though (especially Freehold from March 2024), really tipped things over the edge and I just had to throw out a line and see if he’d take it. A most tender and urgent voice, a voice that makes me want to lean in close and truly listen.”
