Katya Kazbek

katya kazbek, author, Supamodu

Katya is a bilingual Russian/English writer, translator, and editor based in NYC. A recent Columbia University graduate, Katya is currently at work on her first novel about post-Soviet Russia.

As a child, Katya used to read a lot of folk tales from all over the world, so it was a natural progression for her to embrace the planet’s many art forms by founding Supamodu roughly two decades later. Katya is especially fascinated by self-taught artists and avant-garde musicians, but she’s interested in anything liminal, queer, indigenous, related to class or migration.
