Emily O’Sullivan

Writer & editor

Birmingham

"Emily O’Sullivan is the deputy editor of a Birmingham-based magazine, social mobility & class officer for a women and politics journal and a writer with an interest in working-class issues. She has written articles on sex work, meritocracy, transgender experiences in working-class areas, social documentary photography, abortion, and the Jobcentre. Drawing from the people who live in her ex-mining town and the depth of their stories, her focus for future pieces is capturing what brings working-class communities together: aspiration, authenticity, and a sense of camaraderie."
