Arwen Spicer Oregon

Arwen Spicer is from Sonoma Mountain in California, and holds a PhD in English literature and a BS in biology. This interdisciplinary background informs her interest in science fiction, as a reader, scholar, and writer. Her doctoral work focused on evolution and ecology in utopian science fiction, touching on the works of H. G. Wells, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Octavia Butler, among others. In more recent scholarship, she has focused on climate change, the Anthropocene, and indigeneity in science fiction. Her short fiction has appeared in Spoon Knife 4: A Neurodivergent Guide to Space TimeChallenging Destiny, and the Fabled Collective anthology Women of the Woods.
