Cislyn Smith (she/her) likes playing pretend, playing games, and playing with words. She calls Madison, Wisconsin home. She has been known to crochet tentacles, write stories and poems at odd hours, and gallivant. She is a first reader for Uncanny Magazine and Giganotosaurus, and a co-founder of the Dream Foundry. She tends to wear a lot of hats, both metaphorically and literally. Her short stories and poems have appeared in Strange Horizons, Diabolical Plots, and Daily Science Fiction.  She is a graduate of the Viable Paradise Workshop, and spends a lot of time petting her cats. These two facts are probably unrelated.
