Hi! I'm Meres-Sia Gabriel. I'm the best-selling author of I Twirl in the Smoke and founder of Life-Changing Writing. I created my course Life-Changing Writing in 8 Weeks: Write Your Book, Inspire Others, and Leave Your Mark on the World! to help ordinary people write extraordinary stories.
I love languages and cultures. I lived in France while studying for my master's degree in francophone literature and my first daughter was born there. When I returned home, I wanted to become like the incredible teachers who believed in me when I was growing up in East Oakland. So, I became a high school French teacher. I coached new teachers and led a trauma-informed practice for 20 years. I also published my best-selling book during that time. Since then, I have had the honor of sharing my work in amazing communities such as Universidad de la Tierra and EDELO in Chiapas, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and San Francisco's Museum of African Diaspora.
Today, you can find some of my work in the Black Power exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California and Zapantera Negra exhibitions around the world. I am also co-author of the BE-IMAGINATIVE/KQED watch guide for the award-winning film When the Waters Get Deep.
I know that writing and sharing our work can be an uncomfortable experience sometimes, but it doesn't have to be unsafe — ever. In this course, you'll get comfortable with the discomfort that growth requires while making authentic connections with other writers who are doing exactly the same! I look forward to speaking with you and helping you achieve more than you dreamed of.
