TESTIMONIALS FROM CUSTOMERS, STUDENTS & AUTHORS
Robyn's book store is warm and inviting. She is very helpful and understands what customer service is all about. Visit her at her store. You will be delighted...
Robyn is a great bookseller and wonderful creative writing teacher. She... demonstrates a warmth, a depth of spirit, a knowledge of books and writing and a deep attentiveness to the individual. When I met her, I immediately felt I'd found a sister. If reading and writing are doors to expand our understanding of what it means to be human, there could not be a better person with whom to pass through those thresholds than Robyn.
--Masha Hamilton, Author of The Camel Bookmobile
I recently hired Robyn Ringler to edit my manuscript. Robyn's edits make complete sense. Her criticisms are always constructive. She does not change a word, sentence, or paragraph without jotting down her reason in the margin of the page. I quickly realized that every one of her edits is a lesson in writing. My goal is to craft an entertaining tale. Robyn's goal is to make it readable. And she does a wonderful job. Now, if I could only convince her to start her own literary agency. I just know she would be a natural at that too. -- Nick Pignatelli
Just wanted to say how much I love your writing classes Robyn. I learn so much and I love the company of other writers and such a supportive environment ... and surrounded by books, no less. I have such a special place in my heart...for East Line Books as the place I found my "voice."
[A] big THANK YOU for hosting the wonderful reading on Nov. 17th. What a lovely event it was full of fun, engaging readers and a truly...appreciative and engaged audience. Your attention to the details of planning the evening really shows. Not everyone handles their venue with such kind invitation! I truly appreciate it and am so glad to know about the treasure that is East Line Books...
My work with Robyn has been life changing. She has been my writing instructor and editor and has helped me develop my talents and instilled confidence in my abilities. Without her, my work on my book would not have progressed as far as it has. I would strongly recommend her...

East Line Books is a delightful bookstore with an excellent selection of books...This is a store to spend time in browsing, enjoying being surrounded by books, sitting in a comfy chair, or chatting with the owner and staff.
Robyn is an excellent writing teacher. I have taken her Memoir Writing Classes for the last 3+ years. I have learned so much from Robyn. She teaches in a very supportive, encouraging manner. She is very enthusiastic and I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn or improve their writing.
I asked Robyn to review and edit a story I wrote. Her suggestions were very helpful not only with regard to this particular story, but in providing insight into my writing style. The revised story was subsequently accepted for publication in an anthology.
Robyn edited my novel, "A Stop in the Park” and here’s what Kirkus Reviews had to say, “Strack writes with clear, thoughtful and passionate prose, making for a tense and compulsively readable story of family redemption.” Robyn is an amazing editor and I know I wouldn’t be getting reviews like this without her eagle eye.—Peggy Strack
