I consider it a lucky happenstance to have the privilege of working with Bernadette Murphy.Not only does she know a lot about the craft of writing, but she has a way of making it comprehensible to writers at different points of their journey.She also brings with her a wealth of literary knowledge.Many times she has recommended just the right book to read and study in order to develop my own writing.Bernadette’s feedback has proven to be spot-on, and her instincts are impeccable.Her help has been invaluable in getting my words into print, securing a fellowship, and finishing a manuscript.Not every good writer can be a good teacher, and even fewer can be good and kind teachers, however Bernadette possesses all of those gifts. --Natali Petricic email@example.com
I have worked with Bernadette Murphy for ten years.She has mentored me through countless published essays, and now, specifically, she is working with me on my manuscript. I could not have done any of it without her. Her comments are consistently insightful, helpful and to-the-point. She knows what needs to be done, giving me ways to get there. Bernadette has taught me how to find my voice on the printed page - and how to get it out there for others to read. Bernadette is a real pro. --Heather Haldeman
Bernadette Murphy became my coach when I was new to writing and firmly but gently guided me to a whole new level regarding craft and content. I marvel at her uncanny ability to quickly decipher written material, acknowledge what is working and provide clear suggestions for improvement. A delight to work with, Bernadette is an excellent writing coach, editor and mentor. --Eva Margueriette firstname.lastname@example.org
