A literary prodigy, Morissa had her first national article published in Discovery Girls Magazine at age 12, landed her first job as an adviser to Junior Scholastic Magazine at age 13, had her first book published at age 17, earned the position of top-rated editor on Fiverr by the time she graduated high school, gained dozens of writing and editing credits through college, and won the prestigious Chapman Award in poetry twice by the time she graduated from Drew University.

Morissa’s publishing company, GenZ Publishing, focuses on publishing innovative writers who will give a voice to the new generation. Morissa’s book, “Writing for the New Generation” was an early release by GenZ Publishing that is a guidebook to writing in a constantly changing world. It ranked #1 for Educational Language books on Amazon. The second release by her company was “Tales of a Receding Hairline” by prolific Americana musician K.W. Peery of the Marshall Peery Project, which was also #1 on Amazon’s Hot New Releases list of American Poetry books.
Morissa lives by her words that “some writers are afraid to say they are writers for the same reason many artists are afraid to say they are artists.” That is how she encourages innovative writers to gain the confidence needed to publish, knowing full well that their words can heal the world.
