Marianne is passionate about learning and development. She has worked as a tutor and lecturer with the University of Queensland,
is an active member of various writing groups, including VISION, of which she is a founding member, and has developed online courses for a wide range of Australian writers centres, festivals,
libraries and government departments. She shows remarkable flare for online community-building and leverages social and digital media to connect people in innovative ways.

After hours, you can find her dabbling in a diversity of pursuits: including coaching young women’s basketball, researching her Gatsbyesque ancestors, hosting a myriad of events and workshops, and breathing life into her ever-expanding universe of written worlds.
