Hi! I'm an artist and writer. I live in Seattle but rep Michigan. I'm interested in translation, animal cognition, and babies. I tweet at @laurenbanka.

I read, write, review, and edit speculative fiction and creative nonfiction. Until recently, I curated the SFF section at the legendary Elliott Bay Book Company in Seattle, WA, including buying backlist and frontlist. I read submissions for Aqueduct Press, an independent publisher of feminist science fiction. I also do graphic design for events and books.
