CHIMEDUM OHAEGBU (she/her/hers) attends the University of British Columbia in pursuit of hummingbirds and a dual degree in English literature and creative writing. She’s Uncanny Magazine’s managing editor, a co-founder of FEMMES Interactive, and a recipient of the full 2017 Tan Seagull Scholarship for Young Writers. Her professional fiction debut was longlisted for the Nommo Award for African Science Fiction and Fantasy, and she also holds a Pushcart Prize nomination for poetry. She loves tisanes, insect facts but not insects, every single bird and magpies especially, and orchestral music. Her fondness of bad puns has miraculously not prevented her work from being published in Strange Horizons, This Magazine, SAD Magazine, The /tƐmz/ Review, and The Capilano Review, among others.
