Testimonials

"I can't say enough about how valuable this process has been for me—and will continue to be as I digest her comments and revise my story. Her insight, encouragement and suggestions are just what I needed. I will definitely participate in this program again in the future! Thanks so much for the opportunity." —Jennifer Hollmeyer (regarding mentoring author, Katrina Denza)

"I am so glad you guys have this, I cannot tell you how pleased I am." —James Moore

"I found the experience quite wonderful." —Caitlin Hamilton

"Thank you so much for your time and for your words of encouragement. And thanks especially for being so straight with me—this is exactly the kind of tough coaching I need." —Michael Mussman

"Thanks so much for the in-depth critique . . . Also, I'm applying your no-holds barred editorial style to many of my other stories. I appreciate your time and insights." —John Fox

"I wanted to let you and Michele Battiste know that your program through her guidance has been extremely useful for me. I had gotten to a point in my project at which I felt stuck, and I don't have an effective writers group here in Japan to help me. Michele's comments and critique reminded me of some long-standing tendencies that I had forgotten I need to avoid, and she also made some insightful points which were new ideas for me. Best of all, I am reinvigorated and working hard on the project again. Thank you so much for that." —Jessica Goodfellow

 "Thanks so much! Ah, these comments from Laura van den Berg are just what I needed. I can't wait to use this service again for another story." —Kassie Duthie

"I was very impressed with DCWS services and would use them in the future." —Kim Johnson

"Thank you so much. I'm thrilled with my DCWS experience, and the level of thought and critique I received from Gabriel. Tremendously helpful, I will definitely do this again. Thank you to you & Dzanc & Gabriel! —Marie Gauthier (after working with Gabriel Welsch)
