Tessa Swackhammer


Tessa Swackhammer is a queer, autistic writer hailing from Hamilton, ON, where she grew up precisely as strange and ill-fitting as she is now. 


Her writing has appeared or is forthcoming from a multitude of publications like Grain Magazine, Storm Cellar Lit, Ocotillo Review, Sledgehammer Lit, and more. Most notably, she was longlisted for the CBC Short Story Award (2022) with CBC books and won first place in Storm Cellar's Flash Majeure Contest.
