Programs & Classes

A 9-Week Writing Course

Writing is an act of self-discovery. In Excavate Your Truth/Free Your Voice you will explore your identity as a female, identify your life’s narrative themes, and experience your writing as an empowering and transformational practice.

A Group Mentoring Program

Program integrates the craft skills essential to writing memoir with the consciousness work necessary to claim your voice and your story from the cultural shame and silencing that keeps so many women’s stories untold.

One-on-One Mentoring Program

Revise Your Truth One-on-One Mentoring Program is open to women writers who have completed Excavate Your Truth/Free Your Voice and/or Craft Your Truth/Claim Your Voice and want to continue their writing journey with a committed writing coach (Marilyn!) who understands the craft of memoir as well as the patterns of female conditioning that keep so many women silent.

I feel so excited about my writing in a way I haven’t since I was a teenager.
