Michelle Green is a British-Canadian writer and spoken word artist. Her short stories have appeared in Short Fiction Journal and the interactive story mapping app LitNav. In 2005, she worked for a humanitarian aid agency in Darfur, and the short stories collected in Jebel Marra (Comma Press), although fictional, are informed by that experience.

Reviews of Jebel Marra:
‘Muscular, thought-provoking, memorable’- The Guardian
‘An original and intelligent collection’ – Bookmunch
‘Jebel Marra is a red mountain of intrigue, humour, love, hate and suffering’ – Max Dunbar Blog
