I enjoy thinking about my next meal and half-following the rules. My Erdős number is 4. Here is a bio you can use for publicity purposes:

Hal Y. Zhang writes science, fiction, and science fiction, in no particular order. Her language-and-loss chapbook AMNESIA is published by Newfound, and her women-with-sharp-things collection Goddess Bandit of the Thousand Arms is published by Aqueduct Press. She is online at halyzhang.com and @halyzhang.

Here are some other things I’ve done in between bouts of staring off into space:

  • Guest Editor, Fireside Spring 2022 issue

  • Panelist, Newfound Anzaldúa Poetry Prize, 2020

  • Editorial Staff, Reckoning, 2020-now

  • First Reader, sub-Q, 2019-2020
