Janna Marlies Maron



Armed with an M.A. in Creative Writing, Janna Marlies Maron is a self-professed woman in progress. In addition to co-founding ThinkHouse Collective, a co-working space in Sacramento, she’s also an adjunct professor at Sacramento City College. Always on the lookout for new opportunities, Janna has recently added “publisher” to her resume with the creation of Under the Gum Tree, a digital literary arts magazine that publishes creative nonfiction storytelling. She single-handedly recruited a creative team of editors, designers and interns to get the magazine off the ground. Its tenth issue was released in January 2014, and it was listed as a “must read” local publication in the May 2012 issue of Sacramento Magazine. The same article recognized Janna as a “local literati.” Bringing her project management and editorial skills to everything she does, Janna not only keeps her finger on the creative pulse but finds ways to foster it. From organizing events, community outreach and serving on the board of a local nonprofit, Janna is the model of productivity that creatives of all stripes should aspire to.
