About Carmiel

Carmiel Banasky is an award-winning short-story writer and novelist who recently made the leap into television, staffing on the Amazon series, UNDONE, and she is a Film Independent fellow. She is the author of the novel The Suicide of Claire Bishop, which Publisher's Weekly calls a "tour de force," and her writing has appeared in The Guardian, LA Review of Books, Glimmer Train, The Rumpus, and NPR, among other places. She specializes in climate sci-fi and fantasy in the TV and podcasts spaces, and she is currently adapting a feminist cli-fi fantasy novel, FROST AND THORN. She has taught Creative Writing at Hunter College (where she earned her MFA), UCLA Extension, and other programs. Prior to LA, where she lives with her dog, Shadow, she spent four years on the road at writing residencies, including a stint on a ship in the Arctic, studying and writing about climate change. As a young political organizer, she once tried (and failed) to open a Planned Parenthood in Mississippi. She is from Portland, Oregon.
