Marisol Karcs is a first year candidate in the Creative Writing and Environment program. She completed her undergraduate degree in Cultural Studies at McGill University, where she also studied Yiddish, Spanish, and French. Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and hailing from a multicultural background, Marisol's writing explores living between cultures and communities. She has a love for trees and snails, and writes about the wilderness through fantastical stories.

In addition to writing, Marisol enjoys learning and teaching languages. Between her undergraduate and graduate studies, she worked as an English teacher in Bordeaux, France and studied Yiddish during the summers. She hopes to write a children's book in Yiddish.
