Sometimes we just need another person to hold the space for us while we change. We might really just need to “move the needle” a little in our self-image, in how we think of ourselves. Having someone else co-visualize that change with us can make all the difference. That’s what Marjorie does. She holds the space for those of us who want to write, who want to write well, who want to finally claim “writer” as a title. Having been in a writing group she led and also attending several writing retreats, I can say that it was Marjorie’s teaching and encouragement that made the difference for me.
Thank you Marjorie.

My experience in Marjorie’s Memoir Class continues to be a gradual un-layering of my past, which is 87 years old, revealing a life that I had somehow discounted as not important.  Now I am realizing that I am a font of great tales that only I have access to and that perhaps my stories will be as interesting to others as they are to me!
Thanks, Marjorie.

Working with Marjorie St. Clair has been an eye opening experience!  During our coaching sessions, Marjorie has shown me that I can achieve writing goals that were once only a lifelong dream.  Her knowledge of good writing, astute assessment of my talents and abilities has given me solid ground to begin in earnest.  Marjorie is fearless in challenging her students to stretch to become better writers.

I’m now in the second part of my memoir-writing journey and I know I’m supposed to be here. It’s not easy, but it’s worth it. I start writing about one thing and other, often painful things, arise. This class of beautiful women is a lovely, safe place to explore the ways in which to just get it done. Marjorie’s sweet spirit guides us through each class and I feel it when I’m writing on my own. I’m learning so much about myself.
Thanks Marjorie!
