What They’re Saying


 “Like all great coaches, Gay helped ‘raise my game’ to a professional level, while showing how to keep the writing process simple and grounded. She is also a role model for ‘seek with the soul; see with the heart.’ Backed by the experience of her own path-finding, and that of clients of all kinds, she serves as an invaluable guide for finding one’s ‘calling’ as an author in a crowded marketplace. I first turned to Gay with a long, complex piece on a trending topic viewed from the perspective of depth psychology. She was a ‘quick study’ when it came to assimilating the main ideas and then helped to make them much more accessible. Since then, Gay has brought her intuitive touch and integrative skills to a number of other projects. Now I apply what she taught me, as a (paid!) columnist and author of feature articles in magazines. Gay is much like a therapist who assesses your true nature on the inside and then gives you ways to make it come true on the outside, in the world. ” —Cedric Speyer, Clinical Supervisor of E-Counselling at Moreau Shepell

“Gay is a talented and thorough writing coach who is well connected and knows her stuff! I attribute Gay’s coaching in large part to my getting to be a regular blogger for The Huffington Post. I’d also recommend Gay as an editor….she perfected my ebook and my first article for HuffPost.” —Melody Stevens, Speaker/Author- Founder Time Millionaire – Owner Academy of Music on Main Street – Owner Mozarts and Einsteins

“I had the immense pleasure of participating in a writing workshop led by Gay  Edelman. The class was so informative and exhilarating that we requested she begin a Writers Group. This group met for three years and provided a safe space for writers with various levels of experience to learn new techniques, receive feedback and perfect their work. I went on to publish several poems and I credit Gay’s coaching. I highly recommend her to both new and seasoned writers.”      —Sharon Passas, Development Director at Community Access Unlimited, Inc.

“Gay Edelman is the go-to writing coach for helping you find your ‘writing voice’ and improve the quality of your writing. I recently worked with her to review and revise my business copy prior to launching my new website. During the process of re-branding and re-writing all my business content, I wanted to be sure that my writing was not only grammatically correct but that my writing voice also matched my brand. Gay’s edits were right on point and I felt much more confident when I published my website. I recommend Gay Edelman for all your writing needs!” —Melissa McDowell, House of Papier, LLC – Owner/Creative Director, Cedar Grove, NJ


“Superb! I’ve had the great pleasure of working closely with Gay. She is a consummate professional who truly knows her craft, AND communicates her knowledge with wisdom, kindness and humor.” —Terri Blair, Owner, TSBlair, Long Branch, NJ

“Gay Edelman’s book, How to Pitch Magazines, is an invaluable resource for someone trying to gain media exposure through publications. She shares with you step-by-step how to do it and how to foster relationships to help get that coverage. As a former editor at Family Circle, Gay walks the walk and talks the talk and shares with you “insider” tips on how to get in magazines.” —Christina Daves, PR For Anyone
