Isadora Petrovsky

Course Title: TBD

Isadora Petrovsky is a MFA student in the Writing Department at UC San Diego. She is a speculative fiction author, who aims to draw forth the inherent queerness of the SFF, fairytale, historical, and gothic horror genres. Recently she worked as the Program Assistant for the Clarion Writers Workshop and paneled at BayCon 2023. When not writing, she can be found teaching it, reading, playing Dungeons and Dragons, and snuggling with her cat Basil. Isadora was awarded the Ron L. Hubbard Writers of the Future Honorable Mention for her short fiction “Red”, published in Gingerbread House Lit Mag.
