Venessa Giunta is a writer of weird things, an editrix extraordinaire, and a little bit of a nerd. She is a published author, with non-fiction essays, short stories, and the urban fantasy Soul Cavern series, and has been a professional editor, both freelance and contract, since 2008. Conventions are a big part of her life, mainly as a guest and organizer. She is the Senior Programming Director for Multiverse and second to the director of the Writers Track at Dragon Con, both in Atlanta, and has been a guest and volunteer at many others. Additionally, Venessa runs a writerly support group called The Writers’ Troupe (formerly The Writing Tribe) on Facebook, Discord, and Twitch.

She’s been called the sort of evil that inspires hugs.
