Varsha Dinesh is a writer of speculative fiction. Her work has appeared in Strange Horizons and Podcastle, and is forthcoming from Lightspeed and more. Living in India, in moody, myth-haunted Kerala, she writes queer fiction about angry women in fantastical worlds. In 2022, she attended the Clarion West workshop, was a finalist for the World Fantasy Award, and published nothing because there was only so much excitement her ADHD would allow.
She also works as a content strategist, helping brands and small businesses digitize. You'd think creative fiction and B2B marketing are strange bedfellows, but to everyone's surprise- including hers- they're quite amenable to the there-was-only-one-bed trope.
She spends a lot of time on Ao3. If you couldn't already tell.
She is represented by Z. R Ellor of the Jennifer De Chiara Literary Agency
