Marisca Pichette works in speculative and literary fiction, poetry, and essay. Her writing strays from fairy tale to horror to the in-between, investigating queerness and marginalized identity--often involving monsters. She is represented by Amy Collins.

Marisca's debut speculative 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, Readercon, and the International Conference of the Fantastic in the Arts.



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.
