Marianne Smith

Oakland, California

Writing of Witness with Elizabeth Rosner

I have been writing fiction and creative nonfiction for over 30 years, under the pen-name Marianne Goldsmith. I grew up in Waco, Texas, and studied literature at Pitzer College in California, and in France. I received an M.A. in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University. I love poetry, but I don’t write it. Ditto Jazz. I am a human rights and political activist, a communications professional, editor and proofreader. Recent credits include: “Confined to Quarters” in Into Sanity: Essays about mental health, mental illness, and living in between. Martha Nichols, ed. Mark Vonnegut (Intro) (Talking Writing Books, 2019).
