Micheline Aharonian Marcom
The UVA Creative Writing Program is delighted to announce the appointment of Micheline Aharonian Marcom to our faculty. Marcom is the author of six books, including a trilogy about genocide and its aftermath
(in Armenian Turkey and Guatemala), two novels (so far) in a “domestic” trilogy about intimacies among women and men, an illuminated fabulist book of dreams, and, soon to appear, a
novel chronicling the lives of young migrants from Latin America. She is the founder and creative director of The New American Story Project, a digital and public-arts project telling the stories of immigrants
and refugees. Her honors include prestigious Whiting, Lannan, and PEN/USA awards. She will be an exceptionally inspiring colleague and teacher, and all of us in Creative Writing are excited to welcome her.
