The Culture Worm started after I quit my job and decided I want to do something with my life that brings me joy – Marie Kondo, I hope you’re proud. “If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.” – Toni Morrison In my case, The Culture Worm is the newsletter I desperately wanted to read, but it wasn’t there. So I started writing it: Bits and bobs on books and literature, occasional drama oversharing from a Gen Z (but Millennial wannabe), and honest conversations about topics we tend to overlook. I sometimes stumble upon articles that give me “aha” moments, podcasts that I find myself nodding at (or roll my eyes more times than I can count!) or internet findings (that’s a fancy way of saying gifs/reels and what’s trending on Twitter) that make me crack a smile. In short, The Culture Worm is a newsletter delivered in your inbox every Friday morning with some food for thought on culture. Whatever you think this means + more. Just to give you an idea, my interests vary from literature📚, human rights🕊️ and global affairs🌍 to puppies🐾, emojis😃 and keeping plants alive🌱, so there’s something in it for everyone.

Every story ever told really happened. Stories are where memories go when they’re forgotten. If you've got eyes and ears in the right places, you're likely to come across rumours of a man who will find these memories. He’ll go off a-hunting, foraging for the stories you’ve forgotten. I bring them home and show the world, distilling them into pretty little glass vials for you to peruse the horrors and wonders of the cosmos. Take a look. Have your pick.
