About me

Melissa loves food, especially Filipino food. She loves to write, is happily married, and her partner, Josh, is also a lover of food (though it's still debated who cooks better).

Here's a more "formal" bio: Melissa R. Sipin is a writer from Carson, CA. She won Glimmer Train’s Fiction Open and the Washington Square Review’s Flash Fiction Prize. She co-edited Kuwento: Lost Things, an anthology on Philippine myths (Carayan Press 2014), and her work is in Guernica, PEN/Guernica Flash Series, VIDA: Women in Literary Arts, Eleven Eleven, and Amazon’s literary journal Day One, among others. Cofounder of TAYO Literary Magazine, her fiction has won scholarships and fellowships from Poets & Writers Inc., Kundiman, VONA/Voices Conference, Sewanee Writers’ Conference, and was shortlisted for the David Wong Fellowship at the University of East Anglia.
