Marisa has two upcoming workshops at Stanford University’s Writers’ Studio: “Writing the Compelling Character,” on May 6 and 20; and “The Art of Process,” on August 12 and 20.

Marisa’s song “Light Inside” is featured on the soundtrack to Ekilibre Dance Company’s current production, “Lost Paradise.”

She is currently revising her novel draft, recording songs, and teaching fiction at Mills College.

Marisa’s essay “Home,” a lyrical meditation on place and longing, appeared in the Winter 2016 issue of Anchor magazine.

Her short story “Biblioburro,” set in Colombia at the height of the civil war, was featured in the November issue of Tiferet journal.

And her recent “Humansong” was selected in October by Maitri Tunes, which features heart-centered music from wisdom traditions around the world.
