About Marissa

I am currently enrolled in the MFA Writing Program at The New School. Each week, we are required to submit a poem to our workshop class and also revise and critique the poems of our peers. I've discovered that the entire workshop process is vital to becoming a good writer. Not only is the feedback from my peers helpful, but I often find that the critiques that I am making on my fellow writers' poems also apply to my own writing.

My passion has always been for poetry and I have a love for teaching poetry to young students. In the past, I worked for a non-profit where I taught poetry to 5th and 6th grade students after school. It was extremely rewarding for me and also helpful for many of the students who were struggling with writing in school. In addition to teaching poetry, I also worked as a writing tutor throughout my years as an undergraduate.

I have experience with Writing, Grammar, Revision, Editing, and Proofreading.

I would love to help with your writing, whether it's a ten page research paper or a short poem that needs revising. Please feel free to contact me with any writing help you may need.
