I worked with Marie last winter pro bono in partnership with a public school in NYC and I knew right away she was a force to be reckoned with. Her first draft was impressive and it was clear she knew the power of a creative narrative. Her first line started "in media res" (in the middle of the action), which draws the reader in right away and continued with evocative descriptions that helped me feel like I was right there with her throughout her narrative. We worked on clarifying timelines and context, cutting cliches and repetitions, reordering paragraphs for a smooth, easy-to-read flow, and digging deeper to get to the emotional root of the story.

"I have had the honor of working with you and I'm so glad Miss Rosenberg connected us. You have helped me find my voice and story. Thank you so much for everything. I'm glad you have helped me come to the best product! Thank you for all that you've done for me."

—Marie, accepted to Macaulay Honors Program at Baruch, Lehman, Hunter, Stony Brook, Binghamton, Fordham, Villanova, City College of New York, and NYU!
