About Maria

Maria Rodgers O’Rourke is a writer, teacher, and facilitator whose words will inspire you to nurture your talent and get your work done. Like many writers, she knows the struggle of resistance and procrastination, as well as the joy of publishing work that readers appreciate. Having completed Finishing School herself, Maria knowingly and carefully guides participators with a deep understanding of the writing process. Read what she learned in Montana, when she lugged a pile of notebooks across the country in search of her own writer’s voice.
