“Marni Norwich’s natural ability to create a supportive environment conducive for creative writing is simply unparalleled!”

Caroline Crowe, Librarian, Vancouver Public Library

“I attended Marn’s writing workshop at the Library Square in September 2011. Her techniques on how to slow down and sink into one’s writing were insightful and rewarding but that is not what made her class so special. What is unique about Marn is the level of safety she inspires. There is always this dread, at least for me, in sharing one’s work in front of a crowd. Marn holds the space in such a way that it is easy to get up and read, in fact, desirous to do so. She treats each piece of work as sacred—you feel honoured to have shared. I highly recommend Marn in helping to bring out your most creative aspects.”

Jo-Ann Svennson, BodyMind Therapist, BC

"Just finished a six week 'Creative Writing Power-Pack' with Marn and several other creative types. You can find Marn on the hashtag#MEETUP App. Awesome!!! Great learning from students and Marn alike. Diverse group and all supportive. Felt like 'home' no matter who attended. Marn is a very special person with lots to share and encourages each person to share as well. INCLUSIVE. Check her offerings out on hashtag#MEETUP. I’m in for more sharing, caring and learning from gentle nudges."

- Catherine Wade ICD.D, Director at PDAC

"Participating in Marn's [Women’s Writing as Healing] writing workshop has easily become the highlight of my week. Not only is she a beautiful writer herself, she is just a wonderful and kind energy. She is warm and inviting when we all meet, and she provides such reflective and insightful feedback. She has created a truly nurturing environment to allow for writers at all levels to flourish. Each session is thoughtfully curated with guided meditations, inspiring quotes and video clips, and provoking prompts. Marn provides a space where we can all write freely, share vulnerably and hold each other with such compassion. When we get together in her workshop, it is absolute and pure magic.”

Annie Phung, Vancouver BC

These writing workshops are safe, intentional environments conducive for creative exploration and expansion. Participants are encouraged to relax and enjoy while they connect with other writers and themselves.
