Isabela J Oliveira
Isabela Oliveira has been a professional editor for years, from technical documents to pop culture content. While attending college, she kept busy as the poetry editor and later the editor-in-chief of her university’s literary journal, the Salmon Creek Journal. Isabela started speaking on panels at fan conventions in 2016 and has been at it ever since. These days, she’s working as an editor by day, and an occasional podcast co-host, a crafter and maker, and an aspiring voice actress in her free time.
In 2020, Isabela co-founded a small publishing press called Speculatively Queer which specializes in publishing speculative stories about queer hope, joy, love, affirmation, and community. In the past year and a half, she and her co-editor have run two successful Kickstarter campaigns, solicited and processed hundreds of short story submissions, worked with authors to refine their final pieces, and fulfilled over 1,000 book orders of their two anthologies, “It Gets Even Better: Stories of Queer Possibility” and “Xenocultivars: Stories of Queer Growth“.
