Speaking of Mabel Lee

Falling Waters Trail, Franconia Notch

Falling Waters Trail, Franconia Notch

My clients reside all over the country and are engaged in a range of careers, work projects, and creative endeavors. Here are some of their thoughts about my work:

Muriel Angelil – Artist & Writer

“Mabel Lee Cushman has provided feedback for and edited two of my books: my memoir, Back to the Past: A Daughter of the Nile and a collection of poetry, In Close Embrace. Mabel Lee was able to pinpoint the holistic issues in my writing and yet keep the overall perspective of my thoughts and ideas intact. She encouraged me to go deeper in my descriptions and into more detail. She especially helped me see my relationships to the characters in my book with a new and positive point of view. Her editing of structural organization and grammar were quite helpful during this process. I found Mabel dependable and very creative in her approach to editing my books and especially vis-à-vis our interactions.”  Muriel’s website: http://murielangelil.com/

Back to the Past

Back to the Past

Barbara Gormally – Self-Mastery Life Coach
“In my line of work, it’s critical for the written word to clearly articulate meaning and intent; there’s no wiggle room for misinterpretation. Mabel Lee helps me achieve this. She is extremely professional. She stays on task and gently, yet firmly, guides me with effective editing to enhance my business. Mabel was referred to me by a colleague and I’m glad I contacted her. I live in the Southwest and she lives in the East. Geographical location is not a barrier to working with Mabel.”

Goretti Zoma – Special Needs Advocate, Teacher, and Author

“Working with Mabel Lee as my editor for my memoir, A Different Journey with Autism, was an awesome experience! The time and commitment she invested was incredible. She was trustworthy, honest, and highly skilled in highlighting areas for improvement. I will use her again and again and again in future projects!”

Kim Marshall – Artist and Teacher

“Mabel Lee saved my life when I was getting my MFA! Her feedback was the foundation to my thesis paper! Her detailed, thorough coaching and PROMPT email responses were just what I needed to help my writing. I never was good at writing—I never could find the words to articulate myself. Mabel found the right questions to ask me, to help me become the writer I never thought I could be!”

Christopher Daly – The Alarmist

“My experience working with Ms. Cushman was delightful. She brought a sense of originality and devotion to my work, which made it a more pleasurable experience than most business relationships I encounter. Her work is not only top-notch, but in the first week after completing our project, my business began to grow and now my sales are up by 7%, better than I could have hoped. Her communication skills are unmatched and her friendly but serious work ethic made me appreciate her talent as a business partner. I am pleased to have her associated with my business, and I will most certainly be using Word Artisan VT in the future as my only source of editing to communicate with my clients.”

Jeanne Haskell – Enneagram Coach

“It was a great experience working with Mabel Lee. She made fine-tuning my website message a fun process, and her editing skills helped me communicate my message more clearly and precisely. I sought her expertise because I was in overwhelm—obsessing and over-thinking. She helped me to understand and accept online marketing as dynamic, a work always in progress; then she gave me practical steps and some gentle nudging to move me forward. Her insight, encouragement, and support bolstered my self-confidence, which helped the wordsmithing flow more easily. I found it valuable getting clear on my strengths as a coach. Thanks, Mabel!” Jeanne’s website: http://www.jeannehaskell.com/

Matt Dickstein – English Teacher

“Her command of the written language is impeccable. I think you could count on Mabel Lee to handle internal and external communications with great aplomb.”

Note: Some of my clients have worked with me as Kyle or Kylee (my birth/given name). I have since adopted my grandmother’s first name Mabel as my first name.

    Kyle saved my life! She was the foundation to my thesis paper! Her detailed, thorough coaching and PROMPT email responses were just what I needed to help my writing. I never was good at writing; I never could find the words to articulate myself. Kyle found the right questions to ask me to help me become the writer I never thought I could be!
