Marisa Dallas, Freelance Writer and Editor

I'm Marisa.


What if we got together and met for a cup of something warm? 

I've been thinking of creating a flyer and pinning it to my favorite coffee shop's community board. I'd like to get to know people and listen to their stories. I'd like to share some of mine, too. 

When I come up for thought from my laptop, I sometimes catch the eye of another writer. There's a moment of recognition before we return to our own worlds. 

Would a good flyer title be Creative Coffee Meet and Greet? I'll just have to see about it.
