Teaching Writing, Barrhead 2010My mother used to tell me I should be a teacher. I ignored her advice for many years, but have found myself in that place often and discovered my mother was right. I love teaching. I now teach in classrooms and on the web, at conferences and  seminars. I specialize in teaching about writing and have done courses for the Alberta Adult Education Department, His Imprint, (Saskatchewan Christian Writers), Inscribe Christian Writers Fellowship and Write Canada (The Word Guild) I have taught short story writing, fiction, memoir, poetry and devotional writing .


What people have said:

“Marcia has something to say and says it well  – a terrific speaker”

“Marcia’s session was an excellent encouragement to write. Her vulnerability, openness, and honesty permeate her writing and her speaking.”

“Wonderful speaker, profound message. Marcia has the ability to hold everyone’s attention.”

“I really appreciated Marci’s experience and perspective in particular. She offered concrete suggestions that will help me improve my writing.”

“Best workshop I attended at conference. Just what I was looking for.”

    I’d love to attend a class of yours vi found you through inscribe. I’m particularly interested in writing devotional and maybe even a bible study some day. I am just starting out at 44 though I have journaled almost everyday of my life. I love writing and want to write for young women and moms.
