Michelle Panik

Fiction Writer

Author's Bio

I live on the edge of California, in Carlsbad, with my husband and our two kids. I've previously worked as a publications coordinator, a freelance writer, and a middle- and high-school teacher. These days, I teach noncredit ESL at MiraCosta College, and the fine art of bug-hunting to our four-year-old twins.

I also write stories.

I have an MFA from the University of Maryland and a BA in Writing and Art History from UC San Diego. My short stories have appeared or are forthcoming in Terrain, Alimentum, The Sierra Nevada Review, and The Summerset Review.
