Transforming Conflict
about all things “Lost Innocence” & the Human condition

Inspiring audiences to see, feel, and act in new and profound ways.

Michele DeMarco speaking at a conference.
Thanks for your interest in my work!

I’ve always considered writing to be, in large part, a conversation — between me and my ideas, me and readers, and me and the world. But just as much as writing, I love to share and discuss those ideas with audiences in real time (in-person or virtually).

I speak about all things “lost innocence” and the human condition:
