REBECCA LIU

I am a writer and editor in London. I like to write features, essays, and longform criticism about culture. 

 

I tweet ocasionally here. I am a commissioning editor at the Guardian and staff writer for feminist film journal Another Gaze. My work has been published in the Guardian, the Times Literary Supplement, gal-dem, the Financial Times, the White Review, and Internazionale, and has been translated into Italian and Portuguese.

I am represented by Emma Paterson at Aitken Alexander. You can contact me here.
