About Marissa

Marissa Glover shares her thoughts more than necessary, which she considers a form of charitable giving. If it counted as a tax deduction, she’d be rich.

An editor and writer for various companies since 1999, Marissa now works as a Learning Design Coach for the Pasco County School District, where she is a literacy specialist. Before this position, Marissa was a full-time faculty member at Saint Leo University for six years, where she taught writing, humanities, and public speaking courses.

Additionally, Marissa founded and hosted the Friday Night Open Mic event series for three years and served as co-editor for Orange Blossom Review and a senior editor at The Lascaux Review. You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram @_MarissaGlover_ and learn more about her in this interview or this article.

This site is intended as a place for Marissa to keep track of her published work and for readers to find more of her writing. Marissa is also available to teach creative, academic, or professional writing workshops–as well as public speaking workshops–and to offer editorial services for various writing and marketing projects. Interested parties can reach out via the Contact Page to learn more.

Marissa’s first full-length poetry collection, LET GO OF THE HANDS YOU HOLD, was published by Mercer University Press in early 2021. Her second collection, BOX OFFICE GOSPEL, will be published by Mercer in early 2023. Marissa’s professional, creative, and academic writing has appeared in assorted print and online magazines, books, websites, and journals, but her best work has always been on her parents’ refrigerator.
