Dafna Izenberg Today's Parent
“Marcia, the story is great (‘Cyber-Bullying').
So powerful and

strongly written. Thanks for all your hard work and persistence. You really delivered, and I’m very grateful that you took it on.”

Scott Anderson U of T Magazine
“Marcia, I’m very glad you started writing for us.
Your articles have

been a dream to work on.”

Jennifer Walker Best Health
“Thanks so much, Marcia.
You are an amazing writer and I’ve

always counted on you for the hard stories. I always know I’m

going to get something amazing.”

Jacqueline Kovacs Today’s Parent
“Thank you for a fabulous job on this! (‘Needling Doubts.')
It’s intelligent, balanced, thought-provoking and a damn good read. I wouldn’t have trusted such an important story with anyone else.”

David Field Comfort Life
“I just wanted to let you know that I have read through the seven profiles you
provided and I feel you did a fantastic job (‘Inspiring'). The one on Claire Gourley is
beautiful, practically poetic, and given the sensitive nature of her story, it turned out wonderfully.”

Jasmine Miller Women of Influence
“Marcia, this is fantastic (‘Cracking the Code,’ Women of Influence).
I can’t
believe the quantity and quality of the reporting you got,
especially under the
circumstances (super tight deadline). I’m delighted with the piece and so impressed.”


Dan Bortolotti Today's Parent

“You really did a great job with this (‘Breaking Up is Hard to Watch,’ Today’s Parent). Thanks again for making my job easy.”

Jacqueline Hennessy Chatelaine
“I was so exhilarated reading that piece (‘Have Mum, Will Travel,’ Chatelaine) and I want to thank you again.
You are a brilliant writer. You just blew us away.”

Catherine Teasdale Imperial Oil Review
“The detail was incredible and colourful, and your story will have 
great appeal to senior management (‘Picturing Canada,’ profile of photographer George Hunter). It’s an outstanding piece, Marcia. Thank you for writing it so well.”

Stacey Gibson U of T Magazine

"Thank you so much for this wonderful article ('Flip the Script on Opioids.')

I have never done so little editing to a piece in my life. You got it all -- an interesting narrative, differing opinions, you hit the theme bang-on -- and all I pretty much had to do was read it."

Dianne Rinehart Homemakers
“Marcia, I wanted to add my own personal joy at receiving  
such a well-researched, beautifully written piece (‘Infertility').  Thanks for being so professional. It’s a fantastic piece.”

Janet Rowe Homemakers
“We did want to let you know that we thought
the story was 
so very well done (‘Heal Thyself').”

Diana Swift Canadian Health
“Excellent column, great stuff (‘Sex Matters'). 
We just got our data in. Your column is very well read, by the way.”

Bonnie Baker Cowan From the editor's
column in Canadian Living

“Marcia takes her profession seriously and excels as
a writer, researcher and interviewer.
She is ever
respectful of her subject matter, and her writing has
both the warmth and the strength that comes from the
tenacity with which she does her research.”

Kathryn Dorrell Canadian Living
Marcia, it has been lovely to work with you this year.

June Rogers Together magazine
“As always, this piece is perfect, brilliant, full of new stuff and downright amazing (‘AD/HD: The Restless Child'). Thank you, thank you.”

Valerie Lewis Host/editor, Writing Workshop TV series, TVO​ 
“Marcia, thank you again for your help with TVOntario’s Writing Workshop.
You came across like a TV pro.”

Rona Maynard Chatelaine
‘This is one of the finest manuscripts I’ve seen in a long time (‘Have Mum, Will Travel').”

Linda Lewis More magazine
“You did an amazing job! (‘The Hot Shot,’ HPV vaccine) Once
again, Marcia, you have proven yourself to be such a valuable asset

to More.”

Mahara Sinclaire The Laughing Boomer (book)
“Marcia, thank you so much for everything.
You made the text flow. Excellent job.”

Caroline Connell Today's Parent
“Here’s the final edit of your terrific piece on teen terrors (‘When “Bad Teens” Happen to Good Families'). I made very few changes; just a trim or two here and there.
It’s a very strong piece. Hope we work together again soon.”

Arlene Stacey 50Plus magazine
“My God, it’s great! (‘One Man’s Mission,’ profile of Stephen Lewis). You did a wonderful job — made me teary. You are really good at these profiles!”

Lisa Murphy Chatelaine
“Thank you again for delivering such a fabulous article! (‘Back on Track'). As I mentioned, we’re really pleased with it. The quiz is strong, the writing is upbeat and the story is brimming with road-tested strategies.”

Michael Moriarty The Care Guide
“Just read the articles…
fantastic…fantastic…fantastic!!” (‘Special Section: Memory Loss and Alzheimer’s')

With '80s pop rocker Corey Hart
