** Recent reviews (see Reviews tab for more):

Marjorie is amazing! She works quickly, communicates clearly, and brings a sharp, insightful intelligence to every project. I loved working with her.

Excellent writing. We'll definitely hire again.

Marjorie R performs exceptional work. I intend on working with her for a long time.

** From the WriterAccess Monthly Newsletter:

Marjorie R is a classic case of “do great work, and the recognition will follow.” The client she did this brilliant work for was a legal client with very—and we do mean very—high expectations on the content they ordered. Marjorie went into the project knowing full well revisions were going to be part of the job.

However, that didn’t stop her from putting forth her A-game. The client’s reaction? Utter delight. Marjorie knocked this client’s socks off. No revisions necessary, she nailed it on her first attempt. Well done, Marjorie! We tip our hats to you.

** Marjorie's approach to content writing

Marjorie knows that content must be compelling to cut through the clutter. Your potential customers have a million other things they could be doing besides reading the content on your site. Marjorie's content will capture and hold your audience's attention. She writes clear, persuasive, fluff-free text that informs and/or entertains while getting your message where it needs to go.

Marjorie completed a Masters program in English/Creative Writing, where she worked on short stories.

Process classes, which focused on particular aspects of writing, and graduate and undergraduate literature courses were also part of the program. Marjorie's class was also the last to take orals for the M.A., which focused on three authors selected from different genres and time periods. Marjorie's authors were Isaac Bashevis Singer, Dorothy Sayers, and Shakespeare (just the tragedies).
