Mary Ellen is not only a talented poet, but a woman of great spiritual and humanitarian strength who knows how to reach often marginalized students. She's the real thing and brings to the table a way and a presence, a special touch, which I can only term a calling, a gift, a kind of magic. A woman of indisputable mettle with a generous spirit of shared purpose and joint humanity that her writing and her very life embodies.
-Joseph Bathanti, Former NC Poet Laureate
Learn to deeply listen and write from the heart. Workshops are a form of self-nurturing, rich sharing, truth seeking, and allowing the nuance of your inner landscape to unfold visibly on the page. No experience is necessary. Whether you are a stay-at-home mother, retired engineer, or combat veteran, there are workshops for you.
