Marni Freedman (BFA, LMFT) is a produced, published, and award-winning writer. After graduating as an award-winning student from the USC School of Filmic Writing, Marni began her career with her play, "Two Goldsteins on Acid," which was produced in Los Angeles. She worked as a script doctor for top film companies and worked as a script agent for the Mary Sue Seymour Agency. One of her plays was made into a film, "Playing Mona Lisa," and was produced by Disney. Marni is the co-founder and Programming Director for The San Diego Writers Festival, whose mission is to gather Southern California writers and creatives for a day of literary celebration, creative expression and most importantly, to promote diversity and inclusion for undeserved communities. In essence, her passion is to make the art of writing accessible to all. Marni is also a therapist for artists and writers. She teaches writing workshops for UCSD Extension, conferences and retreats across the state and runs the Memoir Certificate Program at San Diego Writers Ink.
Her latest book, Permission to Roar: For Female Thought Leaders Ready to Write is an Amazon Bestseller. Marni's profound experience with her teachers at USC who were blacklisted, has shaped the direction of her life and career. She lives with her wonderfully talkative husband and son and their two cats who don't like each other. Within her community she is often referred to as Glenda, the Good Witch of Writing.
