Testimonials

  • "I can't recommend working with Marisa enough. She's an exceptionally genuine and approachable freelancer. She puts so much thought and creativity into her work and sets the bar high for quality writing. I hope to work with her again in the future!"
    Shelby Ray (Sr. Marketing/PR Specialist at BLUEFIN)
  • "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)
  • "My favorite writer. Her hopeful and optimistic outlook in her various pieces easily bring hope...even to a down-on-his-relationship-luck guy like me. Optimism the way she expresses. Her words are mindset-changing, and are much needed for a person like me, who is susceptible to being pessimistic about love.   With 'Somewhere On A Highway,' she takes her writing style to short-form poetry and prose. The book is about the beginning and the open-ended conclusion of that period of her life, reflected through the intimate pieces she chose to share. Since this is her own book, you can definitely tell the vulnerability is a little more raw."
    Gabriel Basco (Musician & Producer)
  • "Marisa is an inspiration and a talent. Her words are eloquent and universal. She has a way of making you feel like you can relate in every piece. Not only her blog posts, but her poetry. She is passionate about what she does and passionate about connecting with her readers. That genuine energy makes a huge difference and sets her apart in the literary community."
    Elizabeth Newman (Author of Hope Between Heartbeats)
  • "I wouldn't be able to call myself 'writer' without the help of Marisa Donnelly. She's the reason behind my success when it comes to writing.   I was one of those people who was afraid to share his voice to the world, but Marisa extended her help and even gave me wonderful tips on how to improve my skills. She's not just your editor but also your friend. She will remember you even if you are worlds apart. She writes from her heart, helps everyone with her talent and brilliant ideas.   Be A Light is really about her. She's the light for everyone and one day, I wouldn't be surprise if she's going to be the brightest light in this world."
