Michelle Write

Michelle Write (Vasiliu) is an established children’s author who is venturing out as a novice into the world of adult performance writing, in particular spoken word, theatre and screen writing. She is passionate about using her ‘voice’ to bring about positive, lasting systemic change to a very broken mental health system. As a fellow ‘Gnarly Writer,’ she is excited to share her journey to both entertain and educate the ‘unintiated’ about her life as a certifiably ‘mad’ woman.
