Who is Maralyn Lois Polak?

Maralyn Lois Polak is an award-winning eclectic and unconventional American columnist, screenwriter, performance poet, spoken word artist, novelist and journalist.

In collaboration with architect Benjamin Nia, Polak co-created the 25-minute documentary My Hometown: Preservation or Development? about the threatened demolition of 19th century buildings near Philadelphia's historic Rittenhouse Square, and preservationists' efforts to save them from a developer's wrecking ball.

She also authored the experimental online meta-novel, IMAGINARY PLAYMATES/Man in Her Mind: Further Adventures of Boris and Natasha, serialized weekly for six months on the former political-literary website FemmeSoul.Com, and a cartoon book, Anoushka on Her Deathbed: 101 Cartoons From the Abyss.

As a former commentary columnist for the online news site WorldNetDaily during a decade as one of WND.Com's few progressive contributors, Polak wrote more than five hundred political satire opinion pieces in her sometimes controversial weekly column called Left-Handed.
