Stephanie Adams-Santos is a Guatemalan-American poet and multidisciplinary writer from Oregon. Their work has been described as possessing “a distinct, composed wildness that lingers in secret rituals, in the spirit-world of plants and animals.” Stephanie is the author of several full length poetry collections and chapbooks, including Dream of Xibalba (selected by Jericho Brown as winner of the 2021 Orison Poetry Prize) and Swarm Queen’s Crown (finalist for a Lambda Literary Award). Their short story “Night Flowers” appeared in the latinx anthology Speculative Fiction for Dreamers. Stephanie was a Staff Writer and Story Editor on the television anthology horror series Two Sentence Horror Stories (CW/Netflix). Their episode “Elliot” was winner of a 2022 Gold Telly Award in Writing. Most recently, Stephanie staffed on a live action fantasy series in development at Disney+. As an inaugural fellow of the 2022 Ojalá Ignition Fellowship, she developed an original fantasy pilot based on the world and characters of the Tarot. She has received recognition and support for her work from The Sundance Institute, Film Independent, Vermont Studio Center, Regional Arts and Culture Council, and Oregon Arts Commission. In addition to their literary work, Stephanie is illustrating an original Major Arcana tarot deck. She is drawn to queerness, the uncanny, and whatever draws us closer to the primal source.
