Writer in Los Angeles, California
Hello! My name is Marissa and I am an experienced writer, editor, and filmmaker. I specialize in memoir, personal essay, nonfiction, poetry, and scriptwriting. I'm a patient, empathic, honest creative partner who is truly energized by language and stories. I've written a couple of books and workshopped/edited dozens of others at some of the best writing institutions in the world. I'd love to be a champion of your story and voice! I can help coach you through the writing process, edit a manuscript, and/or be a very hands-on ghost writer. I can adapt to your needs. I also have several years experience as a professional researcher if research is required, as well as experience as an English as a Second Language teacher, if English is not your first language.
