Marléne Zadig is currently based in Silicon Valley, California and a graduate of the MFA program in Creative Writing from the University of Maryland. She occasionally makes beer (only when her 1950s house with no insulation and no AC allows) and very often makes stories—once, a novel, now begging to be liberated from the coat closet. She is also the mother of two very young children who both literally and figuratively keep her up at night. Her work has received an Honorable Mention for both the 2010 and 2011 Katherine Anne Porter Fiction Prizes at the University of Maryland and has recently appeared or is forthcoming in Sakura Review, Reed Magazine, Split Lip Magazine, and Bartleby Snopes, among others.
