Marisa Wikramanayake

Marisa is compelled to write by mysterious forces beyond her ken. She has lived in three countries so far, published her first book at 17 and has compounded her fate as an editor and journalist by getting a Masters degree in Journalism which means she can never really put down the pen or the keyboard. Ever. She has worked for the third largest literary festival the Galle Literary Festival and organised the 2013 IPEd national editing and publishing conference. When not glued to a book, she fusses over her cat, paints, games and writes really cool things for the Australian Women Writers project.
