Charmaine Li


I’m a Toronto-born writer and editor, living in Berlin.
I mostly cover art, design and technology—and the ways in which they intersect. I also write about anything else that leads me into a(n internet) rabbit hole. 

         My writing has appeared in print and online publications such as Newsweek, AnOther, CNN Travel, Kinfolk Magazine, Dazed Digital, Broccoli Magazine and mono.kultur among many others.

I’m the founding editor of ONEIRIC.SPACE, an online magazine exploring dreams and the unconscious through an interdisciplinary lens.

        Previously, I was an editor at iGNANT, senior editor at Tech.eu and an editor at Vertical Media.
