-- Allie Marini first started kicking ass in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. She is a 2001 alumna of New College of Florida, which means she can explain deconstructionism, but cannot perform simple math. Her work has appeared in Goulash! (1996), Pan’ Ku (1999), New CollAge (2001), Scratch (2008), Penumbra (2009), Crash (2010), Shaking Like A Mountain (2010), Multi-Culti Mixerations (2010), A Daughter’s Story Anthology, (2010), Eyrie, (2010) and Interrobang?! (2010). She has lived all over Florida and Washington State. She calls Tallahassee home and is a research writer and sometime hairdresser when she isn’t writing. She will start her MFA degree in Creative Writing at Antioch in 2012 and is waiting to see where life will take her.
