Why subscribe?

Outsider is a brand new column that brings together everything that can be considered different. We live in a world that tries to mold us into conformity, but Outsider is a voice for the ones who don't conform to the status quo. We have curated an incredible selection of content that empowers and inspires our readers to embrace their own individuality. Designed in newsletter format, with the aim of reaching the reader directly, thus avoiding the risk of getting stuck or lost into other channels, Outsider is born from the need to give a voice to those who do not want to conform to mass stereotypes, but also to those who choose a life out of the ordinary, to those who, despite living within the society, do not feel part of it or prefer to stay on the margin. Outsider is an alternative way of generating knowledge and moving consciousness. It is a vision, conceived from the hope of stopping being slaves to the polarized information we receive every day from media.

Who am I?

I’m Valentina Marzulli, an engineer, researcher, poet, whose craft is deeply rooted in multicultural and multilingual experiences. I was born and raised in a remote village in the very South of Italy. I now live permanently in Germany. As a woman with a soul divided between two different countries, between science and poetry, I believe that creativity is all around us, and I love to express it in different languages. I am a firm believer that a woman can be whatever she wants to be. I don’t shy away from speaking my mind. Writing is not only my passion but my way of living. I believe that every word has the power to change the world, to inspire and uplift others. I am also the creator of Lady Margot Stories, a website where I share my poems, stories and opinions.

Join the crew

Outsider aims at sharing informative articles, written in collaboration with international authors, and which will be published via the substack platform on a monthly basis. It is a project open to anyone who wants to make their voice heard, to share their life experience, to bring attention to issues they believe are worth talking about. Be part of a community of people who share your interests.
