K.C. Mead-Brewer is a writer and editor living in Ithaca, New York (though she still misses her beautiful Baltimore).
Her fiction appears in Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading, Strange Horizons, Carve Magazine, and elsewhere. Her work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net, and is included in both 2019’s Best Small Fictions and 2019’s Best Micro Fiction.
As an author and reader, she loves everything weird—fantasy, horror, scifi, fabulism, all the good stuff that acknowledges change is not only possible, but inevitable.
She serves as a fiction editor with both Cleaver Magazine and 7×7, and she’s a prose reader for Cotton Xenomorph. She is a proud member of The Roving Writers, a small group of women artists who got their start together at Hedgebrook. She was a resident at the Vermont Studio Center and is a graduate of both the 2018 Clarion Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers’ Workshop as well as Tin House’s 2018 Winter Workshop for Short Fiction.
