Reviews and Testimonials
What others have said:
“Art Joyce, a gifted writer and editor, significantly influenced me as a novice writer. This gentle man became my first mentor, encouraging me to revise, expand and elevate the writing of deeply personal stories. Art’s editorial feedback was consistently clear, respectful and insightful. Without his initial guidance my stories would likely have remained limited in number, depth and scope. I am proud to acknowledge his contributions to my success in developing my manuscript, Warrior Angel.”
Art graciously agreed to meet with me last July 2020 to discuss my aspirations towards writing. Art freely offered his time that day to inform me of the skills, time, and dedication required to reach my goals. He gave me a list of books to read, exercises to do, and tips on writing. I came away from our meeting empowered and greatly encouraged to begin my writing adventure. In the ensuing months, Art has continued to support and advise me. His critiques on my writing have helped me to improve and develop a deeper underlying meaning to my stories. I can't say enough about this very intelligent and knowledgeable man. I entrusted myself to Art's caring guidance and I am now living an unfulfilled desire I had for myself in my early 20's! Thank you Art.

Diana Morita Cole, author of Sideways: Memoir of a Misfit, wrote: “Your insights and grasp of literature are inspiring. And you employ the Socratic method with such ease. You have the spiritual qualities of a sensei, Art. I use the term sparingly and with great appreciation of the brilliant work you do. What makes you so effective is the amount of care you bring to the classroom. You care whether people learn.”
