Rewrite . the . Rules


write you.

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.

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 we follow what we are called to do.

passion & professionalism

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. I also believe 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 you while remaining true to your voice & mission.

Informative & innovative, each participant receives a detailed handout for future reference. All my writing spaces offer a collaborative experience where each participant has the opportunity to explore, grow & be heard. Most workshops are open to beginners and writers of all genres & levels. Masterclass courses require a basic knowledge of fine writing. Each zoom class is a safe, inclusive & encouraging space. Cost varies per workshop or masterclass course. Payment plans are available for all courses.

WAXING POETIC with Hannibal Lecter

Do you like a nice chianti now & then? What about fava beans or lamb chops—extra rare? Or perhaps you’re a well-scrubbed hustling rube with a little taste & you can only dream of getting out… getting anywhere… getting your writing all the way to the—OK, I’ll save it for the course. But as an instructor, I’m clearly into the Socratic method. So, what does Socrates have to do with the iconic Hannibal Lecter & what does he have to do with poetry? In two workshops of 2.5 hours each, we’ll explore just that along with fun writing exercises & a little philosophical poetry under Hannibal’s impeccable guidance. We’ll also be sinking our teeth into Hannibal’s greatest gift…whimsy.

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.
