The daughter of Cuban refugees, Marialicia González was raised in Miami with a value in the efficiency of love & creativity. Mari started writing as a child as a way to witness herself. Poetry gave rise to her imagination and haiku, in particular, captivated her. She is a grief revolutionary. Using her 30 years of experience as a midwife, RN, social worker, minister, and artist, she has transformed the heartache of deep, personal losses to become a strong voice in the cultural shift to normalize the experience and expression of grief. 

Marialicia is the founder of DARALUZ WISDOM, where she consults with individuals and groups in bringing clarity to the childbearing years and beyond. While facilitating workshops, rituals, creating courses, and providing one-to-one consulting, she supports people in making informed, wise choices, for themselves and their loved ones, with a focus on holding space for grief and the expansion that our grieving hearts hold. She is a space-holder, leatherworker and hiker, a storyteller and a mother. 

Language Has No Words is the poetic journey of one woman’s heart. Written in the classic syllabic composition of 5-7-5, these unconventional haiku accompany you through the nuances of grief, forgiveness, sex, longing, curiosity, joy, and hope. Marialicia González walks with you as you breathe deeply and awaken to the subtleties of life, navigating your deepest fears, satisfactions, and wonders; until eventually you become a poem unto yourself: https://campsite.bio/marigonzalez

November 2024 is the twentieth anniversary of the founding of Ghost Town Poetry Open Mic. This year’s featured readers include Kevin Sampsell, Gay Garland Reed, William Erickson, Bruce Hall, and Debra Elisa.
