About Marisa Donnelly

Hi, I’m Marisa Donnelly! I’m a Midwest-born, West Coast-based writer, editor, teacher and coach. I’m the author of the poetry collection, Somewhere On A Highway, and the founder of a writing and editing services company, Be A Light Collective.

selfie2Who is Marisa Donnelly? — I specialize in relationship-based coaching and passionate content writing: creatively, professionally, and academically. I’m passionate about helping clients, brands, businesses, and blogs all over the world find the perfect voice, build their confidence, and reach their intended audience.

I’ve been in the writing industry for over eight years and have published thousands of articles—both in print and online—accumulating over 21.2+ million page views. I have bylines at many major publications including Thought Catalog, where I was a Staff Writer & Editor for three years, prior to launching my full-time business. I also teach and tutor part-time with students of all ages and abilities.
