A note about this site

Marcella Prokop (she/her) is a writer, educator and vagabond at heart. As a Colombian American and a Midwesterner, her life and her writing have been shaped by her dual identity and the place she lives: the in-between.

Her writing has been published online or in print by Ploughshares, Pank, The Brooklyn Review, and the Christian Science Monitor, among others.

Marcella is a creative writing instructor, a published poet and an advocate for students of all backgrounds who want to find and amplify their voice. She has facilitated discussions about linguistic diversity in higher education, the power of mentorship in digital spaces, and what it means to re-shape one’s narrative. 

This site is a digital notebook pulling together stories from the various intersections of Marcella’s life.
