Hi everyone! The day has been so thoroughly enjoyable and enlightening so far – I’m loving the focus on writers from underrepresented backgrounds. It’s so cool reading about all your different projects here and I’m really looking forward to connecting with you all on Twitter! My handle is @aemlair.

I’m currently a Brighton-based creative and critical writing PhD student, researching queerness in Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables and its adaptations, including fanwork. I’m also working on my first novel about an attic that slips in time.
