Marieke Genard

Marieke Genard is fascinated by people and their stories. She gets to hear them every day in her work as a career coach and recently as a Dutch teacher for non-dutch speaking newcomers. Sometimes she also writes articles, but she mostly enjoys prose and poetry.

Marieke is currently writing a book about the inhabitants of her house in Borgerhout. A house that will soon turn 100, in a neighbourhood scarred by history. You can read more about Marieke and her work at
