Aurelia is an online magazine that publishes a diverse range of thought-provoking work by marginalised genders; women, non-binary people and trans men. Every essay and article they publish is written from a first-person perspective, and every feature published allows the subject to tell their own story in their own words – placing a spotlight on the individual experience.

In this 90 minute session, two editors from Aurelia talk about the ins and outs of pitching and writing personal essays. 

The session will include a Q&A-led discussion as well as a workshop to get the personal essay juices flowing. 

The event takes place on 11 March 2021 from 18h00 to 18h30 GMT.
