I hired Marial because I was getting stuck with writing material for my website. The content I'd written was too academic and not at all marketable.
Marial helped translate the passion of my heartfelt desire to help people along with the fundamentals of the models of therapy I use into accessible language clients could relate to.
I highly recommend Marial for her vision, writing skills and ability to cut through the muck. She knows how to help you effectively present the messages you really want to put forth on your site.—Ginnie Cramer, MC, Registered Clinical Counsellor
Over the past few years, Marial has been a great resource in helping us get the message across for our small business, the Food Pedalers Co-op. From our production manual to our website to effective grant writing (which we were awarded! See results here
), Marial has helped shape our words (and grammar!) into a form that clearly communicates who we are and what we do. Her thorough, thoughtful and collaborative approach made this work easy and made sure we got our message out accurately and on time. Thanks, Marial!—Chris Thoreau, Chief Executive Pedaler, the Food Pedalers Co-op
Oh, that Marial's such a treat! I first met this wonderful wordsmith when she was hired by Touchwood Editions to proofread for our first book, Fire Hall Cooking with Jeff the Chef
and I was delighted when she got the gig as editor on our follow-up, Where There's Food, There's Firefighters
. Marial was very thorough in ensuring that the culinary details were accurate, consistent and credible, and that the numerous anecdotes I recounted were delivered with their intended humour and voice. Marial was constructive with her criticism, and genuine with her praise, with the goal of creating the best work possible.
Working with Marial felt like a true collaboration and that's why I consider the books to be "ours." I'll never forget how thrilled Marial was when she called to tell me that she had received her copy of our second book and how pleased she was with it. I had no shortage of laughs working with Marial. She made what could be a methodical process fun. Simply put, Marial makes me a way more better writer. I look forward to our next project together.—Jeff Derraugh, firefighter, fire hall chef and cookbook author
Marial is a truly gifted writer and editor. She has offered a much-needed guiding hand on several of our projects. She understood what we were trying to get across and helped us clarify our message. Her professionalism and humour made her a joy to work with.
As an online company we really appreciate that Marial understands the role and power of writing on the Web.—Stephen and Christine Parslow, Bread and Butter Creative
Marial is everything I want in an editor. She is skilled, knowledgable, reliable, a pleasure to work with and brings a delightful sense of creativity that further enhances your texts, whether print or online-based.—Betsy Warland, author of 13 books, including Breathing the Page: Reading the Act of Writing
Since I started my business several years ago, I have employed Marial to write copy for, edit and proofread my brochure, which gets sent to over 3,000 prospective clients each year. Simply put, Marial never misses a darn thing
! She is extraordinarily efficient as well as fast, friendly, professional and personable. Having Marial on board is not merely an asset, it is an honour.—Kevin Bruce, owner of KBAM! (Kevin Bruce Arts Management)
I first hired Marial ten years ago as an editor. More recently, I've been hiring her to write for me. Many people know what they want to say, but they get stuck when putting pen to paper. That’s where I found myself. If I need something edited or written, I turn to Marial. Without a doubt I will continue to hire her!—Mark McCook, President Rainmark Management Inc.
