I am a Brazilian-Canadian writer, literary arts educator,

and education program designer dedicated to using the tools

of creative writing as a catalyst for social change and climate action.

Who do I teach?

From K-12 students to senior citizens, I enjoy equipping groups of all ages to develop personal voice, write with confidence, engage with literature, and share their stories, opinions, and ideas for public audiences---on stage, on the page, and in public spaces.

 

"Alyssa exudes warmth and excitement as an educator. Alongside the students she learns with and from, she generates a safe container for imagination to flow. She makes poetry more accessible, and for that reason, everyone leaves feeling a little bit more curious."

 

—Heather Prost, Head Facilitator & Regional Lead Western "Canada" at DAREarts
