The work of Stephanie Adams-Santos spans poetry, prose, and screenwriting. Often grappling with themes of strangeness and belonging, her work reflects a fascination with the weird, numinous and primal forces that shape inner life. She is the author of several full length poetry collections and chapbooks, including DREAM OF XIBALBA (selected by Jericho Brown as winner of the 2021 Orison Poetry Prize) and SWARM QUEEN’S CROWN (finalist for a Lambda Literary Award). Her short story NIGHT FLOWERS appeared in the latinx anthology SPECULATIVE FICTION FOR DREAMERS. Stephanie served as Staff Writer and Story Editor on the television anthology horror series TWO SENTENCE HORROR STORIES (CW/Netflix). Her episode “ELLIOT” was winner of a 2022 Gold Telly Award in Writing. As an inaugural fellow of the 2022 Ojalá Ignition Fellowship, she developed an original fantasy pilot based on the world and characters of the Tarot. In addition to her literary work, Stephanie is a professional Tarot reader and is making headway on an original Major Arcana tarot deck inspired by occult animism.
