From Midge's Students and Clients...



"A true wordsmith and consummate professional, Midge Raymond is a virtual search engine of information when it comes to writing and getting published. Taking Midge's classes inspired me to return to writing and publishing after a 13-year hiatus. I look forward to taking more classes with Midge to keep my skills sharp and to work in an environment of positive and helpful feedback."
--Patricia Walsh

"The feedback was invaluable!" -- Robin Lienhardt

"I worked with several editors but none seemed to comprehend what I was trying to accomplish. Then I found Midge Raymond. She intuitively understood the depth of my story and helped me to shape the story without changing my voice. She gave gentle suggestions for grammar, better transitions, and more powerful phrasing. She also gave me intelligent advice on how to polish my story and make my words and ideas flow more effectively."
-- Elizabeth Anne Hill

"Coming to this fiction class was the highlight of my week. Midge was entertaining, insightful, and inspiring. I can't wait to come back!" -- Sundari Masters

"Midge's Getting Published seminar was a huge help to me. When I got ready to submit my first story to a magazine, I pulled out the sample letters and all my notes. I tidied up my story per the suggestions made in class; wrote my letter to the editor, again per Midge's example; and sent it off to the top magazine in the genre the story was written for. Two months later, I got a call telling me they wanted to buy my story. I never would have had the tools to accomplish this without having taken Getting Published." -- Leslie Sowden

"My novel has been sitting now for ten years. You have given me the incentive to finish it. Thank you." -- Evelyn Ziehler

"A wonderful experience!" -- Jon Agree

"Midge's knowledge of the craft is extraordinarily deep." -- Felix Tinkov, Esq.

"Midge was extremely easy to work with and had very positive, encouraging comments through the editing process. Her professionalism and suggestions for improvement were very helpful and truly made for a better book."
-- Peter Vultaggio, The Lumi Company

"Getting a chance to become re-introduced to my muse was a very valuable experience. I would recommend this seminar to anyone who needs to be reminded that we all have a little voice inside needing a chance to speak." -- Lisa Jambeau

"The class gave me many useful suggestions that I will incorporate into my story. Thanks for the help!" -- Willeen Hasler

"If you learn one thing from a seminar, your money was well spent. I learned four things, so I owe you money." -- Iris Allyn

"The afternoon was informative, inspiring, and fun. The personal critique, plus learning new concepts, has energized my writing. Thank you." -- Bettye Burns
