Mary van Ogtrop


Mary van OgtropMary van Ogtrop grew up in Delaware, whose motto—“Small Wonder”—she has tried and failed to appropriate for herself. Now a happy if earthquake-freaked resident of San Francisco, Mary is pursuing her MFA in Creative Writing at the University of San Francisco and works for streaming-music service Rdio as a senior copywriter. Previously an editor for LivingSocial and Philadelphia tourism, Mary has had writing published in The Haverford Review and The Spur Journal, though she counts being pointed at by Bruce Springsteen as her crowning achievement.
