Marcia Peck’s prize-winning short-short fiction has appeared in Chautauqua Journal, New Millenium Writers (first prize), Flashquake (first prize), and Gemini Magazine, and elsewhere. She was a Glimmer Train Award finalist for “The Flavor of Borscht” and received a Pushcart nomination for her short fiction “Long Distance.”
She is the grateful recipient of Artist Fellowships from the Minnesota State Arts Board, Loft-McKnight, and the Jerome Foundation as well as residencies at Hambidge Center in Georgia and Ragdale in Illinois. A cellist with the Minnesota Orchestra for her entire musical career, she is inspired by the rhythms and sounds of music echoed in language.
Marcia’s love for Cape Cod has been a strong and deep current throughout her life. She and her sisters still return to the house their father built in Orleans. She lives in Minnesota with her husband and two very naughty dogs.
