rEWrite . the . Rules
A master artisan of the written word, I work closely with writers & professionals—so that you can be heard, read & valued for what you bring to the world. I respect your voice, streamlining & refining your text so that you shine! I craft sincere professional writing that expresses your unique vision. I don’t just elevate, I educate! My master class courses, mentoring & workshops build fine writing fast. If you don’t know where to start, I can help you with that too. Be heard. Be the change. Write you.
In Atlantic Canada, we take a kitchen table approach to things. This relaxed, friendly world-view is part of what I do. My clients often call me just to chat. Authenticity & trust are just as important as providing a top-quality product.
Your voice is valuable & necessary. Without you, something important will be missing from the world.
As a female entrepreneur & ally, I assist individuals in business. As an editor & writing consultant, I help poets & long-form writers elevate their craft & publish. As an educator & mentor, I don’t just teach, I provide honest, encouraging feedback & tools to build evolving skillsets. I believe in you, I want you to be successful on your terms! We all thrive when each of us follows what we are called to do.
passion & professionalism
As a young reader, I questioned the editor’s role in “correcting” a writer’s voice. As a young academic, I watched brutal peer critiques end writing careers before they even began.
I don’t believe in “correcting” someone’s writing or that “tearing apart” someone’s work “improves” it. All writers begin in the same place, no exceptions. Writing is a skill, learnable, & we all achieve more from supportive feedback.
What I do believe is that it’s not what but how & in abandoning established narratives to find your own voice & give life to what matters to you. To honour that belief, I regularly pursue professional development with award-winning writers & teach myself new technical skills. With this ever-evolving skillset, I can personalize my services for each client while remaining true to their voice & mission.

Each participant will have the chance to compose a prose poem and workshop it with the group. Writers of all genres and levels, and those who have never written poetry before, are welcome. All my workshops are safe, encouraging spaces.

What My Clients are Saying
I’ve taken Kayla’s masterclasses & have had editing as well as individual mentoring 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.Gerald Arthur Moore, Author: Shatter the glass, shards of flame; Trigger Fingers; Just Another School Shooting
