Contributor Limelight – Bianca Velasquez

In July 2018, Bianca Velasquez joined SLUG’s ranks as Editorial Assistant. She principally helps to coordinate and organize editorial coverage with a go-getter spirit. Velasquez cherishes representing community members through SLUG’s content and has a knack for storytelling in her own right. With respect to her recent favorite features, she cites those she wrote about Josie Cordova’s To Space, Comrade! video game and Tucker White’s short-story triptych, The Magic Building. This month, Velasquez has penned an interview feature with filmmaker and local Film Fatales leader Diana Whitten (pg. 18), which regards women in the film industry. Velasquez has also been a Volunteer Coordinator for our latest Brewstillery beer-and-spirits event and values SLUG events like Localized. With all of her energy and willingness, we love having Velasquez on Team SLUG!
