Biography

I tell stories about people who are not seen or heard enough to offer them a reflection in this world.

Aude Konan

Award-winning author, screenwriter and communications and diversity and inclusion consultant

My writing career began early on in France. As a child writer, I won a dozen of French literary contests and published many short story in anthologies. I’ve published my first novel, a YA novel called "Les Chats Errants" in December 2013 and my next one, a children's book called "Ma Petite Soeur" in 2014 with Dagan Editions, a publishing house. 

As a bilingual journalist, my features have been published in national and international magazines and webzines such as Okay Africa, Complex Mag Uk, Media Diversified, Amina and more.

As a filmmaker, I have written, directed and also collaborated on many short films My latest short, Me Too, is currently in pre-production.

I am also an alumni of the Soho Writers Lab, Talawa TYPT and the Royal Court's Introduction to Playwriting.

After working in the TV industry for a few years, I realized how much diversity and inclusion was an afterthought for these companies. I decided to combine the creative workshops she gives with diversity and inclusion ones. I work as a speaker and creative consultant and have led creative workshops in the UK and Europe for companies and arts organizations like Stonewall UK, Expedia UK, Amnesty International, UK Black Pride and more.
