“I have been working on my first novel for a while now. But, before submitting it to a publisher, I know it can have stronger characters and a more compelling storyline. But how to get there? It is difficult to be critical of my own work. That is the reason I was so happy to find the services of Marie Powell. Such an excellent editor! She suggested just a few, well-placed changes and already the manuscript is flowing beautifully. A publisher has requested the entire manuscript now. I feel confident submitting, knowing that Marie’s careful eye and well-honed skills are part of the package.” – Carol Daniels (Bearskin Diary)

“Marie was the fiction editor of the magazine that was publishing my first short story. What I appreciated most, in addition to the close reading and insightful suggestions on my work, was the ease of working with Marie. Our working relationship felt like a true partnership where I could express my questions and concerns and they’d be welcomed and fully considered. What an important experience to have as a newly published writer!” – Darla Tenold (Spring magazine, Vol. 10)
