Thanks so much for all the great critical feedback. I've learned so much and do feel that your coaching has helped me take my writing to the next level.

I've benefited enormously from your comments, insights, and recommendations.

To say that Pam Bernard is a skilled poetry mentor would fall far short of her actual worth to me. She has been, and continues to be, the closest reader of my poems, and their best critic. Pam possesses a keen knack for identifying language that is not fully realized and for combining encouragement with concise, practical suggestions that inevitably lead to better revisions. Any poet looking to improve his or her writing would benefit greatly from Pam's guidance.

Your reading of my manuscript is very astute–many many excellent suggestions. Ideas on arrangement are particularly helpful.

You have given me a better sense of the work as a whole, something I was struggling toward but couldn't quite seem to reach.
—Nancy Kassell, Brookline, Massachusetts
Your comments were incisive–in particular I admired your ability to extract themes and order from my chaos. I would recommend you in a heartbeat to other aspiring authors.
