Writer Bio

Vida Cruz is a Filipina graduate of the 2014 Clarion Writers Workshop, a Writers of the Future 1st place winner, and a 2018 Tiptree Fellow. Her fiction can be found in Lontar: The Journal of Southeast Asian Speculative Fiction, Expanded Horizons, the Philippine Speculative Fiction Anthology series, and various other anthologies. She just wants to pet all the dogs and wear purple things.

Writing Style

She tends toward poetic prose that, when cobbled together, is usually about love, relationships, and Philippine mythological creatures--with decolonization, feminism, environmentalism, and other social issues sneaked in.

Writing Goal

I will be redrafting a 32,000-word novella and possibly balancing it with a novelette if I'm not in the mood.

Fundraising Goal

Any donation is a good donation.

writing goal:
42 days spent plotting a novel or writing short stories
