Marcia’s work with Flint Hills Publishing results in part from her 25-year-long personal journal practice. Her upcoming book, Skywriting, will include exercises from her own creative and memoir writing experience, her teaching of dramatic and creative writing classes, and leading “Writing to Heal” groups. Marcia believes that writing can give us courage, a sense of authenticity, and make us look up.
