Chimedum Ohaegbu


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, Fantasy & Science Fiction, Arc Poetry Magazine, The /tƐmz/ Review, and Augur Magazine, among others. Find her at, or (infrequently) on Twitter @chimedumohaegbu.
