Marcela Serrano (born 1951) is an award-winning Chilean novelist. In 1994, her first novel won the Literary Prize in Santiago, and her second book won the Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz Prize for women writers in Spanish. She received the runner-up award in the valuable Premio Planeta competition in 2001 with her novel Lo que está en mi corazón.

Carlos Fuentes has quoted her description of the modern woman as "having the capacity to change skin like a snake, freeing herself from the inevitability and servitude of more obsolete times".[1]
