Chimedum Ohaegbu (CHIM-ay-doom aw-HAY-boo, she/her) lives in Treaty 7 territory in Calgary, Alberta. She’s an editorial assistant at McClelland & Stewart, as well as Uncanny Magazine’s managing and poetry editor and a Hugo Award winner. Her fiction debut was longlisted for the Nommo Award for African Science Fiction and Fantasy, and she holds a Pushcart Prize nomination for poetry. She’s a 2021 graduate of UBC’s Creative Writing Program (Bachelor of Fine Arts) and, as a playwright, the Black Arts Development Program, and is a member of The Capilano Review‘s editorial board. She loves insect facts but not insects, birds and magpies especially, and orchestral videogame music. Her fondness of bad puns has miraculously not prevented her work from being published in Strange Horizons, Arc Poetry Magazine, The /tƐmz/ Review, and The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, among others.
