"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."

"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)

"Currently one of my favorite writers for her reliability; that is, for her personal experiences, and careful insight in each of her posts. Her perspective on life is hopeful and true. I wish would have known about her writings earlier in life and before entering (or staying in) toxic relationships for the sake of being a 'good person'. Thank you for spreading your cheerfulness and giving us all reason to carry on with optimism."

Benjamin Cuellar (Marketing & Social Media Specialist)

"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)

"Donnelly writes wonderfully, in fact, she is in the top handful of creative writing students I have worked with over the last fifteen years."
