What is Aurelia?

We're an online magazine that publishes women and non-binary people; priding ourselves on our beautiful content and nurturing space. Aurelia cares about your thoughts, feelings and experiences - this is a platform that encourages you to tell your stories. Every essay we publish is written in the first-person,  and every feature we publish allows the subject to tell their own story, in their own words. Everything on Aurelia spotlights the individual experience. Your pieces are always handled with the sensitivity and care they deserve. You can read more about Aurelia's origins in this interview with the founding editor, Kya, and Yolklore Magazine here.

Do you work with freelancers?

Absolutely! Whilst we do have a team of staff, we also work with and commission freelancers based on the pitches we receive at submissions@aureliamagazine.com.

How do I submit?

Information about submitting to Aurelia can be found here. If successful, you'll hear back about the editorial process within two weeks, and we do aim to get back to everyone with feedback.

Where and when did Aurelia start?

Aurelia was created in Manchester, England, in 2018. Since then, we have published so many articles, given countless writers their first by-line, helped writers get published elsewhere, hosted events and started a bookclub-esque podcast. There's much more to come! 

Can you pay contributors?

Unfortunately, Aurelia is unable to offer payment at this time and is running solely on the work of volunteers. This is something we desperately want to change. If you'd like to support Aurelia in the meantime, you can donate to our PayPal, or become a member and get perks on Patreon.

Do you offer internships?

We are currently unable to offer internships at this time, but this is subject to change. Please keep an eye on our Roles page for more information.
