Academic-facing bio:

Phoebe Wagner is a writer, editor, and academic working at the intersection of climate change and speculative fiction. Her academic research explores how the predictive futures unintentionally imagined in speculative fiction can inspire new systems of adaptation and transformation during the climate crisis. Her fiction has been published in PANKDiabolical Plots, and AURELIA LEO—among other places. Wagner’s current projects focus on completing a short story collection themed around environmentalism, skateboarding, and activism, and a novel set in Reno, Nevada, which explores the trauma of nuclear testing. She is the co-editor of two collections founding the genre of solarpunk: Sunvault: Stories of Solarpunk & Eco-Speculation (Upper Rubber Boot Books, 2017) and Almanac for the Anthropocene: A Compendium of Solarpunk Futures (West Virginia University Press, forthcoming). She is also an active participant in the speculative fiction community, holding membership to the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, regularly presenting at the World Science Fiction Convention, and blogging about speculative literature at the Hugo award finalist Nerds of a Feather, Flock Together.
