Swapna Krishna



I am a space science and tech writer, writing a weekly column on spaceflight and space science at Paste Magazine. I also write about space regularly at Tor.com and The Portalist. In addition, I've had pieces published by Smithsonian Magazine.

I also write about books, comics, and pop culture. I'm a regular contributor at Syfy Wire's Fangrrls and am the Comics Editor of Book Riot. I also freelance for outlets such as Bustle, Paste Books, and more. In addition, I run a book review blog, S. Krishna’s Books, write mini book reviews at Litsy (username: @skrishna), and write a biweekly space newsletter called Give Me Space.

I'm also one half of Desi Geek Girls, a podcast about geek pop culture and Bollywood. Shah Rukh Khan retweeted me once.

 I have appeared on panels at New York Comic Con, the American Library Association, the American Psychiatrists Association, and AwesomeCon, as well as was a keynote speaker at Granger Leadership Academy in 2016. I’ve also been on many different podcasts.

For two years I was the Managing Editor of Panels, a comics site that has been folded into Book Riot as Book Riot Comics. In that role, I handled social media, wrote and edited daily posts, created and produced YouTube videos, and oversaw all daily functions of the site.
