Miranda Aguilar (they/them1) is a queer, Filipinx writer, creative producer and community arts worker2.
They write for stage, screen and beyond, and support emerging artists and story-tellers through their day job at CuriousWorks.
They are a proud member of Ka-llective, a Sydney-based collective of Asian-Australian creatives from multiple disciplines.
In 2023, they were part of the UNTAPPED Development Lab, presented by Screen Australia and Australians in Film.
In 2022, they were a part of the AFTRS National Talent Camp, and the Co-Curious Bright Side writing program as part of the Netflix Fund for Creativity.
They write scripts and stories for soft-spoken brown weirdoes, spicy gay nerds, and hopeful pessimists.
In an increasingly disconnected and unempathetic world, their work cracks open an audience's brittle shell, releasing a tidal wave of emotion, laughter, tears - everything simmering under the surface and dredged up from the depths.
Occasionally, they like to write about something hopeful and send it directly to your inbox. Because you deserve something nice once in a while, As A Treat.
