Raluca Balasa recently graduated from the University of Toronto with a major in English and a double minor in Cinema Studies and Psychology. Her short work has appeared in The Lorelei Signal, The Danforth Review, and U of T’s speculative fiction magazine, The Spectatorial. When she’s not writing, she can be found playing the piano or spilling things.
Raluca’s approach to writing is character-oriented. She’s fascinated by love-hate relationships, antiheroes and antagonists who make you agree with them. She believes speculative fiction and literary fiction are not mutually exclusive terms, and that anyone who thinks so is a snob.
Currently, Raluca is the agency assistant for a literary agency in Toronto. Her favourite living things are birds.
