Tatsiana Zamirovskaya

Tatsiana Zamirovskaya is a Belarusian writer, music critic and journalist, who moved to Brooklyn, New York, in 2015 to get her MFA at Bard College. Currently she works as a journalist, unable to go back to Belarus because of repressions, war, and her anti-dictatorship views. She writes metaphysical fiction about ghosts, liminality, and lost identities. Her stories in English have been published at World Literature Today, E-Flux and other magazines. In 2023 she had been teaching an online creative writing course for LGBTQ refugee writers from Belarus, which resulted in a book Pakoj with their short stories, published in Warsaw, Poland.


Tatsiana has 3 short stories collections published in Russia, and a bestselling novel Deadnet about digital resurrection, published in 2021, receiving great critical acclaim and shortlisted for several Russophone literary prizes. Film rights to the novel have been optioned.


Currently Tatsiana is working on her new collection of stories, and a creative autofiction novel, based on her experience of surviving in New York City as a struggling writer in exile.
