  • "I am English Department Chair, a teacher with 39 years of experience and a District Literacy Coach. I say that not to impress – but for you to understand how impressed I am with Ms. Donnelly. She is one of the best.”
    Deadra Stanton (Mason City High School Department Chair)
  • "Several of her poems touched me. I am a big Mary Oliver fan and have several of her books on my shelf and maybe a half dozen by other poets and Donnelly's book is going on that shelf of keepers, on poetry books that I re-read and refer to...that inspire me to make a piece of art or share with a friend. "Run Wild With Me", "Sixteen", and "This You Must Learn Young" were among my favorites. I hope that she continues to write poetry of this caliber."
    Kathy Duffy (Lead Critic at Goodreads)
  • "Somewhere on a Highway made me feel lost, and at the same time, made it seem like I found myself. Some poems touched me. Reading several parts brought tears in my eyes because oh my god, it was amazing...Marisa's writing will capture your heart."
    Imogene Rae V. Dacanay (Founder of Mugglebooks)
  • "Marisa was one of the first few editors who I worked with for a long time. What I enjoyed most working with her was how fast she responded to my questions and requests. Besides that, she has been a great help to point out ways to improve my work so it fits better for the publications I wanted to submit to."
    Dean Yeong (Lead Writer at Quora)
  • "Marisa was my editor for almost a year and I worked with her one-on-one. As someone who pretty much didn’t have an idea about the publishing industry, Marisa helped me figure out who I wanted to become as a writer.
    She has the talent and skills to give feedback about your writing constructively. She’s very knowledgeable in guiding you to find your voice and your style. She points out something in your writing that you need to work on and you’ll eventually realize that her suggestions are accurate. I had so many mistakes as a writer that I would never have learned if Marisa didn’t point them out — she’s honestly that great.
    Not many people know this but her academic background was stellar; she graduated college with flying colors and that’s a clear proof that she’s competent. She will deliver whatever it is that you asked from her and she will exceed your expectations. That’s what I learned after working with her almost every single day."
