Virginia Vigliar is a poet, writer and editor with roots in her pocket. She explores themes such as social justice, human conditioning, womanhood and feminism. She believes that writing can speak loudly against violence, sexism and misogyny, and in favour of our bodies, social justice, and respect for our nature. Her mission is to use her writing as a weapon of resistance against toxic narratives and create a safe space for her readers. Her writing is an experiment of empathy, and a mirror of her growth, a journey in evolution and a metaphor of life where fears are ordinary and the cycle is never linear. Her writing evolves and changes with her. She is inspired by, and forever grateful to, those who cross her life, those who leave, those she dreams of, and those she touches.
Virginia was born in Rome, Italy and is currently based in Barcelona, Spain. She has collaborated in the past with Al Jazeera, Guardian, Vice and New York Times among others.
