Founded in July 2014, Aura 32 is the brainchild of Liv Fitzsimons. Wanting to create a safe space for young creatives to share their voice and talent with the world, Aura 32 was born. Over the last three years, writers and photographers have been given the opportunity to do just that. With staff hailing from Australia to New York and everywhere in between, we represent the uniqueness of our community. We aim to support and enable young creatives to create content that speaks truth to them and the world around them. Most importantly, we hope to inspire others to never stop creating.

Aura 32 offers writers, photographers, illustrators, and social media creatives the ability to hone their skills in a professional, inclusive environment. We strive to provide a welcoming community to all.
