M. Marcel, Writer & Creative Director

M. Marcel is a writer and storyteller at heart. One of a select group of graduates of the Munk Global Journalism Fellowship program at the University of Toronto, his works have been published by the CBC, the Globe and Mail, National Post, Financial Post, Corporate Knights Magazine, the Boston Globe, and the Vancouver Sun.

Marcel’s curiosity of writing was piqued as a young man composing letters and marketing materials for his dad’s Vancouver-based retail fashion business.

Marcel spent four years writing Ministerial and diplomatic correspondence, and planning public policies for Canada’s Foreign, Trade, and Development Ministry. He has worked in editorial and publishing roles for university research centres and non-profits in Brussels, Riga, and Ottawa, and taught high-school English in Cannes, France.

To quell his innate drive to write and tell others’ stories, Marcel recently shifted gears from an academic track towards a writing career.

In his spare time, Marcel is an avid reader who enjoys practicing calligraphy, playing soccer and ice hockey, and tasting new foods with friends.

Marcel holds a B.A. in International Relations and Economics from the University of British Columbia. He studied international development, earning a M.A., and inter-generational justice, receiving a graduate diploma in Ethics and Public Affairs, from Carleton University in Ottawa. He is a member of the Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association.
