Anne Marie's warmth and encouraging spirit really catapulted me into the process of getting published! The work was done, and I was in a purgatorial state! Her words woke up my sleeping confidence which laid in wait until granted permission to move forward!
- Shirley, proofreading client
Anne Marie is a wonderful poetry mentor. A poem engineer with a keen eye for details in and between the lines, her guidance has helped me expand the horizons of my poetic expressions in the world. She is also a fantastic and generous resource on publishing poetry - be it in journals or your own poetry collection.
-Neha, poetry student
Anne Marie has vast knowledge on poetry form and has introduced me to numerous poets who are now on my list of favorites. She not only gives great feedback as a whole but she is good at getting to the nitty-gritty.
-Marissa, student and workshop participant
Every time I have requested Anne Marie's proofreading services, she has delivered edits and feedback that are valuable, amplify my message, and stay true to my authentic voice.
- Kayla, higher education professional
I don't post anything on social media, give a talk or speech, or send important emails without Anne Marie looking at them first.

Testimonial: "Getting my manuscript edited has always felt like a vulnerable process, but Anne Marie was professional and friendly in her feedback. Her proofreading services were detailed and helpful. I would happily work with her again in the future."

Sown in Light: Poetry for the Forgotten Soul (Mama's Kitchen Press, 2023)
Testimonial: I sought [Anne Marie's] content editing services for my authors’ books and not only was she very professional, she was quick, efficient, and detailed. She has a strong eye for pointing out weak points in a poem. She is also clear and offers helpful direction on how to fortify those weak points. Although I sought her services for others, she will be the first person I reach out to for content editing my next manuscript.
