Eli Barraza is a creator based in Los Angeles, with experience writing for stage, screen and audio. She entered the world of podcasts via the writer’s room for the time-travel conspiracy thriller ars Paradoxica. She left it only to work towards something larger by co-founding the podcast collective The Whisperforge with that same team. Eli then launched her own show under The Whisperforge, The Far Meridian. The magical realist podcast completed its second season this past April. She has also written guest episodes for other podcasts, like the Chicago-based Our Fair City and the critically-acclaimed drama The Bright Sessions. When she’s not writing in whatever medium best fits her current idea, she climbs rocks, explores California and teaches astronomy at the Griffith Observatory.
