Over the last five years I’ve had the privilege of working with some extremely talented authors, many of whom have gone on to secure agents and publishing deals. Here’s what they have to say about working with me…
“Marisa’s feedback included three main points to improve in my manuscript as well as several comments for each chapter (focusing on superfluous words, chapter endings, similes, sense checking and more). In particular, she guided me in improving my main character’s arc which has brought much more depth to my book. As well as providing constructive feedback, Marisa also included praise and encouragement which is important for any sensitive writer like me! Highly recommend.”
Sally Doherty – author of Toby and the Silverblood Witches.
“My writing, my career, and my sanity wouldn’t be what they are today without Marisa Noelle. I was Marisa’s mentee during #WriteMentor 2018, and she has been a friend, mentor, and inspiration to me ever since. I don’t send anything to my agent before getting her eyes on it first! Her keen sense of storycraft, world-building skills, and overall industry knowledge are invaluable no matter what publishing path you’re looking to take. Her feedback is poignant, helpful, and always given in kindness. Marisa is an amazing writer and editor, but in working with her, you’re going to get more than that. You will end up with a wise mentor and friend who supports you every step of the way.”
Author Hannah Kates, represented by Lynnette Novak of The Seymour Literary Agency.
“Marisa is lovely to work with. And she is very wise. Her feedback is balanced – highlighting strengths as well as areas for improvement which I found both valuable and supportive. She gives fantastic and actionable advice from voice to plot logic to grammatical quirks. I would work with Marisa again.”
Nicola Dahlin – mentoring client.
“Marisa’s editorial input was game-changing for me. She has a gift for strengthening the spine of a story. As well as offering detailed and constructive feedback on what to improve, she also shines a light on all the bits that are working well already and is the most enthusiastic cheerleader you could ask for. I was a relative newbie when she took me on as a mentee through Write Mentor, and thanks to her insight and encouragement, I ended the year long-listed for two awards and with loads of lovely requests from agents. More importantly, I felt on-track not only with that manuscript but with my writing in general.”
