“I had the pleasure of having Giorgia as my slam coach from 2016-17. Her kindness, thoughtfulness, and attention to detail encouraged me to delve deeper into my writing. Giorgia’s editing and coaching skills are powerful in that they are accessible and encourage vulnerability, leading to vital opportunities for comfortable yet constructive self-expression. Without her, my writing skills would not be where they are today.” —Ahmed Badr, refugee writer and activist, founder of Narratio

As an editor and coach, Giorgia approaches creative writing as a communal practice. Their invaluable attention to detail, impressive knowledge of form, and caring manner helped me grow immensely as a writer and performer. Giorgia not only offered their own editing and coaching skills, but fostered community such that team members became better able to support each other within and outside the team context. Giorgia’s support prepared me well to eventually take on editing and leadership roles myself.” —Ariel Munczek Edelmen aka Miznomer, writer, academic, drag performer
