I'm Marie Maccagno,

Founder of Adventures in Writing

As a mentor and guide, I aim to provide the same inclusive, supportive experience I had when I started writing and sharing my words. Without this support, I never would have had the clarity and courage to write my memoir, The Chocolate Pilgrim, based on my experience of walking the Camino de Santiago with my husband and adult son.

The Writing Feedback Guidebook

How to Ask For & Receive Helpful, Supportive Feedback on Your Writing

Not all writing reviewers are created equal! When you hand your carefully crafted pages to someone to provide feedback, the result is often unhelpful & at worst, can be crushing. This FREE guide will help you choose insightful, supportive readers. It will also teach you how to ask for what you need and want from them to continue honing your writing with confidence.

In my small-group writing programs, we write together and share using a process that will transform your writing and your life. As an added bonus, deep friendships that transcend geographical boundaries are formed. Writing together in this way is an antidote to isolation.

I remember “writing stories” before I knew how to form letters, but it wasn’t until I was 55 that I seriously committed to writing. I had always felt a deep yearning to express my stories that never went away. Eventually I found myself in a state of personal freedom I hadn’t experienced while my kids were growing up.

As I dove into the process of committed writing, I also experienced the ups and downs of sharing my words, revising them, completing my writing projects, and eventually publishing a memoir. Throughout this process I grew passionate about helping writers like you improve your writing skills through a lens of encouragement first, and a focus on what’s in your writing.
