Daljinder Johal

Daljinder works across journalism, marketing and production in addition to being a writer, publishing her fiction and essays in anthologies and magazines.  

She works with companies across the UK including the LGBT+ organisation Gaysians, in the vibrant Birmingham arts scene with Beatfreeks or she makes worldwide connections as a Senior Executive Assistant with the literary journal, Asymptote.

As for her journalism work, she frequently covers Arts and Culture, reviewing at The Royal Shakespeare Company, Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Birmingham Royal Ballet.

However, her main aim is to platform the unconventional or unheard stories of others. Therefore, she has a particular passion for highlighting the diversity and creativity of Birmingham. It has a fantastic DIY culture and is full of people, who don’t just want to talk about change, but make change happen. 

She hopes to be one of these people but when she’s not working towards this, she spends her time enjoying live music, fine art, travel and food.
