K. Tempest Bradford is a speculative fiction writer by night, a media critic and writing instructor by day, and a podcaster in the interstices. Her short fiction has appeared in several anthologies and magazines, including In the Shadow of the Towers, Clockwork Cairo, Diverse Energies, Federations, Strange Horizons, Electric Velocipede, EscapePod, Podcastle, plus many more.
She enjoys commenting on media as much as consuming it and prides herself on being a "harsher of squee" when it comes to television, movies, books, and other entertainment that doesn't live up to high standards. Tempest's articles, media criticism, and reviews can be found on NPR, LitReactor, the SFWA blog, io9, and various other media outlets. Her essays have appeared in Chicks Dig Time Lords and Luminescent Threads: Connections to Octavia E. Butler among other collections. When not writing, she hosts and contributes to multiple podcasts, including ORIGINality on RelayFM, the JEMcast, and The Write Gear or Hologram Radio.
Tempest teaches classes and seminars on writing inclusive fiction, many alongside Writing the Other co-author Nisi Shawl through writingtheother.com.
She’s active in the SFF fandom community and volunteers for a number of non-profit organizations. In the past she’s served as a juror for the James Tiptree Jr. Award, served as Programming co-chair for the WisCon feminist science fiction convention, organized fundraising auctions and salons for the Interstitial Arts Foundation, and raised funds for Clarion West, her writing workshop alma mater. Currently she serves on the board of the Carl Brandon Society, an organization dedicated to increasing racial and ethnic diversity in the production of and audience for speculative fiction.
