Lara Margaret Marjerrison is a freedom fighter on a quest to liberate the voiceless, beaten down, and bound using the sacred power of stories. Through her workshops, talks, poetry, and performance, she helps people tap into the unlimited power of words to heal from harm so they can show up as their whole selves, fully present and grounded in their power. Ultimately, all her work is about connection, because she knows that when we connect, we care, and when we care, we take better care...of ourselves, of others, and of the world around us.

"Life takes guts. I love your guts."

About: Welcome

I just finished reading grief & loss & love & sex cover to cover. It's achingly beautiful.

Lara's words and works are inspiring and sometimes come to me exactly when I need them. Following her is always challenging and fruitful.

Jo-Anne Wilson, Writer & Editor, Freelance


grief & loss & love & sex is more than a book of poetry. It is a laying bare of the soul, a finding of truths, a search for light. It is a quick read, and it is a book I don’t think I will ever stop reading...I highly encourage you to check out this book.
