Learn about Juleyka’s company, LW&C:
Our work stems from a mandate to see things differently. To use digital narrative tools to bring people from the margins to the center of the story. To free them to create and command their own universes. Guided by a shared journalistic ethos, we seek stories in the seams of society, where strength and courage dwell. And where fiction has nothing on real life.
In this interview, Juleyka speaks on choosing the phrase “erasing the margins.” Her team at LW&C adopted this term to describe the work they’re creating in the audio space. She explains why this term describes the work they’re producing.
