Chimedum Ohaegbu (CHIM-ay-doom aw-HAY-boo, she/her) lives in Treaty 7 territory in Calgary, Alberta. She’s 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 loves tisanes, 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 or forthcoming in Strange Horizons, Arc Poetry Magazine, The /tƐmz/ Review, and The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, among others.
I’ll be performing at the ephemera reading series on May 19, 2021!
