Thank you for reaching out; I will be in touch soon.



Hello! My name is Fiona Macleod-Iyer Picard and I'm a Scottish-Indian American living in Copenhagen. I've worked as an experience designer, creative instructor and in the food industry in many different roles. I have a BA in Philosophy, a BS in Sociology, and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing. I'm currently working on a collection of short stories about women and food. When I'm not writing or teaching, I'm outside in nature or on cafe terraces with friends and family. Let's get in touch!
