N.K. Jemisin is a writer of SFF fiction. She won the Hugo Award for Best Novel for three years running, in 2016, 2017, and 2018, for the three books in her Broken Earth Trilogy, and a Hugo Award in 2020 for her novelette, "Emergency Skin." Her acceptance speech in 2018, delivered in person at Worldcon in San Jose, talked about racism in the SF industry. This annoyed Robert Silverberg and members of the Sad Puppies community.

Jemisin was involved in RaceFail '09 on LiveJournal.


She was interviewed for the article What Fan Fiction Teaches That the Classroom Doesn’t ([1]) as an author with a fanfic-writing background.
