Testimonials

"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)

"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 provides an honest collection of words that makes you feel like you're a close friend that she is talking to. She has a gift to tell a personal story while inviting you into your own so that the reading experience is both intimate and contemplative."

Brian McFadden (Founder of Us Vs. Anxiety)

"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)

"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."
