Write you

Be heard: what you do is meant to change the world.

As a master artisan of the written word, I work closely with writers & professionals who want to be heard. I streamline & refine your text to reveal your best writing, or your strongest message. The Meryl Streep of my field, I work in your voice. I craft sincere professional writing that expresses your unique vision. I don’t just elevate, I educate. My Masterclasses & workshops build fine writing fast. If you don’t know where to start, I can help you with that too. I want you to be heard so that you can do what you’re meant to do: change the world.

What My Clients are Saying

I’ve taken Kayla’s masterclasses & have had individual editing sessions. I’d say what she offers is first class. The masterclass was affordable while being superior to university level creative writing courses that I’ve taken. Virtually every piece that Kayla worked with me on has been transformed from an okay piece to something beautiful & publishable. If you are interested in writing in any way (whether it’s poetry or business emails) do yourself a favour & book a session with her, your writing will be elevated.

J. Drew Lavigne, Emerging Author & Bookseller

Kayla is superb at listening & drawing out teaching moments with clever questions & thorough explanations. She is generous & insightful with feedback & positive encouragement in class time, in addition to taking the time & effort to send written critiques & helpful pointers between classes. She offered tea & comfortable seats, laughter & a sense that wherever we are in our writing, it is OK.

Carol Steel, Award-winning Poet

Kayla Geitzler is a triple threat: magnificent poet, editor & writing consultant. She’ll take your words & make you stretch, bend & think. Your finished product will be much better; she’ll help you sculpt good writing to great & unpublishable to publishable. If that’s your goal, to get work into the world, then you need to learn from Kayla Geitzler.
