Maria graduated from the University of New South Wales with a Bachelor of Arts degree, majoring in English and Theatre & Film Studies.

She enjoys proofreading so much, she launched her own proofreading business and enjoys helping people put their best foot forward with their writing.


Although Maria feels as though writing classes are akin to bungee jumping without a cord, she has completed writing courses with the Australian Writers' Centre and Writing NSW.

Her work has been featured on 50 Word Stories and in November, 2020 she served on the board of Beyond Words Literary Magazine.
