I have worked with Mary and Brenda at Bloomery Forge for over 10 years. Their work has always been exemplary. I have a variety of clients in different industries and Mary has always delivered creative, witty, funny, and professional copy that conveys exactly the right message. With Mary's copy and my design, we have pulled in 6 national design awards in the aviation, financial, and senior living industries. I look forward to a continued partnership with Bloomery Forge and many more awards!Jun 16, 2016

I had the distinct pleasure of engaging Alec Nesbitt to develop the copy for my website. Alec's unique blend of business savvy, coupled with a great command for the elegance of words and language including a clear sense of marketing insight was a great asset to the overall success of the assigned work. I have no reservations recommending Alec.Oct 28, 2015
I have had the pleasure of working with Bloomery Forge on a number of projects. Brenda was a key in writing and editing the script for a documentary film that I produced (Climb for Freedom), and Alec edited my book (The Wisdom Within These Walls). I don't know what I would have done without them. Truly professional, excellent communicators, creative writers and editors. I would have no hesitation in working with either/both again. If you get a chance to work with Bloomery Forge, grab it.Oct 16, 2015
Mary, Brenda, and Alec are consummate storytellers, be in long form or a one page ad. Their years of experience will help you tell what you want to tell to who you want to tell it in the most concise and effective way.Oct 5, 2015
