Sophie Paul (she/her, b. 1998) is a designer and writer based across London and Oxfordshire. Working with experimental writing, collaborative publishing and performance, her interests intersect critical theory, trashiness, and eroticisms. She has written for radio and live voice, run writing and zine making workshops and staged interventionist performances at various sites around London, introducing alternative dialogues around the body as sites for interruption and excess.

Her thesis, Notes Towards a Theory for Iridescence uses the qualities of iridescence to propose an affective re-writing of the ways girlhood and iridescence intra-act. This piece was awarded the 2022 RCA Writing Prize.

Alongside Kaiya Waerea, she is one half of Sticky Fingers Publishing, an intra-dependant publisher based in London, publishing experimental feminist, queer, crip, non-fiction.

She is currently a resident at Peripheral Alliances at the Ammersee, a cooperation between Kunstverein München and Euroboden.
