About Adria Bailton

Adria Bailton (she/they) spends her day focusing on the nuclei of atoms, and imagines entire worlds and universes to share. Their first published poetry and short fiction were in her high school’s fiction magazine some decades ago. Their first paid short fiction was in 2021 to Wyldblood Flash. Her piece at Constelación Magazine was published in both English and Spanish. Adria is an Associate Member of the SFWA and Codexian.

Writing from the U.S. Pacific Northwest and the traditional territory of several Indigenous nations, including the Stillaguamish, Suquamish, and Duwamish, they live with a couple humans, a couple axolotls, several fish, and three dogs.
