Marisca Pichette works in speculative and literary fiction, poetry, and essay. Her writing has been nominated for the Bram Stoker, Pushcart, Best of the Net, Rhysling, Utopia, and Dwarf Stars awards. Straying from fairy tale to horror to the in-between, she investigates queerness and marginalized identity in her work--often involving monsters. She is represented by Amy Collins.

Marisca's Bram Stoker and Elgin Award-nominated poetry collection, Rivers in Your Skin, Sirens in Your Hair, was published April 4, 2023 by Android Press. Order your copy today!

She has presented critical work at the International Conference of the Fantastic in the Arts and the Once and Future Fantasies Conference. She has given readings and sat on creative panels at the Nebula Conference, Can*Con, Boskone, Arisia, Readercon, and the International Conference of the Fantastic in the Arts. In 2023, she mentored with the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association



Marisca began writing in high school, studying linguistics and crafting languages for her worlds. She earned her BA from Mount Holyoke College in 2019, and graduated from the Stonecoast MFA program in 2021. She lives in Western Massachusetts, where she works with a Montessori school.
