About Mariona

Mariona Lloreta (she/her) is GrubStreet's Director of Development and Engagement. In this role, Mariona helps to make sure that GrubStreet has the resources to keep providing exciting classes and programs that meet the needs of writers and readers at all levels, while supporting writers’ development and helping them share that work locally and with the world. As an interdisciplinary artist and producer, Mariona has dedicated her career to empowering fellow artists and cultivating equity through her work. For over a decade, she has collaborated with community members, local businesses, arts leaders and institutions in countries including the United States, Brazil, Italy, Nigeria and Spain, in order to gather the necessary resources to bring an array of narrative, documentary and experimental films to life. Through her work as an instructor at GrubStreet and Emerson College, Mariona has raised funds to provide scholarships to motivated, under-resourced students to help close the gap in the entertainment sector. Whether it is by teaching screenwriting to adults and teens or leading award-winning productions that battle the danger of a single story, Mariona is committed to honoring historically underrepresented communities in any project she is involved in. Born and raised in Barcelona, she holds an MBA from National University and a Bachelors in Advertising and Public Relations from the University of Barcelona, Spain.
