where women write, read, connect & create


I'm so glad you're here.

I offer one-to-one coaching sessions, writing and publishing classes and small group workshops for women who write, read and create.  I work with new, emerging and established writers on all types of writing projects -- memoirs and novels as well as short work, including essays, articles, short stories and poetry. My goal is to educate and inspire you to write your best work and be successful on your own terms, whether writing for yourself, a small audience -- or for the world at large. I'll meet you wherever you are on your writing journey. It will be my honor. 

"Marcelle knows how to shape and structure a story...she's the rare writing coach who draws out the hidden rhythms and patterns in the prose."

--Anya Liftig

"Working with Marcelle on my manuscript was like having a customized Master's class
in writing and editing.

--Kelly Cervantes


"Marcelle brings out the best in each writer. If you want to learn to write, improve your writing, or publish your work, call Marcelle.”

--Mary Ann Palmer 

"Marcelle identifies ways to improve your writing and encourages you to write the story you want to write.

-Aline Weiller
