Expert Services & Writing Workshops


A TALENTED WRITER & EDITOR, MY GIFT IS HELPING people PURSUE THEIR AUTHENTIC VOICE OR MISSION with WRITING. My passion for written excellence has grown into 15 years of well-rounded experience in the arts & many technical fields.


Write You.

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.


Editing – Substantive & Skill Building


An editor’s job is to tweak language so that your text—poem, report, website content, speech, short story, novel, emails, documentation, manuscript, article, academic paper—shines.

Substantive Editing is where I streamline & refine your text to reveal your best writing or strongest message. I examine your text as a whole, as a body. I work with your writing from its bones (structure) to its skin (aesthetic). I analyze technique, grammar, spelling, form & more, making edits within the text and leaving comments to ensure I am working towards your goal. As always, I work within your artistic or professional vision so that you can be heard!

Are you seeking to improve your writing skills fast? Request a Skill Building Edit! Just like a substantive edit, I analyze & edit, leaving detailed explanations on how you can achieve your best writing. Feedback is always constructive. This form of textual mentoring allows you to grow as quickly as you would in a university level seminar.

Mentoring – Creative & Professional


Working with my mentor elevated my writing & changed my future. Now I work to do the same: lift up others in the craft of writing.

As your writing mentor, I see the best in your work & can offer many perspectives on how to reach your goals. I guide you in your voice or argument, respecting your creative vision or industry. During video calls, phone calls, or in-person sessions, you’ll receive my undivided attention & expertise. You will be given readings & exercises in theory, process & technique, along with writing (& publishing) advice. Through steady writing & exploring the intent & “how” of your ideas, you will advance your writing fast. I can also offer help with formal recitation or public speaking. I believe in you.

Writing


I craft quality content for businesses, creatives, professionals & non-profits. My expertise includes reports, website content, speeches, letters & emails, documentation, articles, resumes, manuals & more! A keen collaborator, my skillset includes co-authorship & ghostwriting. I also offer Field Expert Facilitation: working one-on-one with experts to create or revise discipline-specific writing & documentation.

Masterclasses


My most popular writing courses are my Masterclasses! These 8-week courses in Poetry or Prose are constructed for writers who have a basic, intermediate, or advanced understanding of writing & wish to advance their creative writing skillset. Weekly readings assignments for each class include Theory or Process—conceptual & behind-the-scenes practices of published authors, as well as diverse & inclusive writing from talented living authors. Each class revolves around group discussion of the weekly readings & workshopping of participants’ original works. I foster a safe, healthy workshopping environment built on honest, constructive feedback. All participants are encouraged in their unique voice & creative vision without the interference of ego.

Workshops


My Writing Workshops are typically three-hour sessions or cover a two-day period. Using a collaborative approach, my workshops examine a wide variety of subjects & technical skills in poetry, prose & technical writing. I foster a safe, healthy workshopping environment where we give honest & constructive feedback. All participants are encouraged in their unique voice & creative vision without the interference of ego.

Upcoming courses are posted on my landing page & Facebook Business page. I also collaborate with Shannon Edgett to offer Healing with Writing Workshops!

As an aspiring writer, I have been taking a class for the past few weeks with Kayla Geitzler. I highly recommend tapping into the variety of services she offers, she’s of great talent! She is inspiring, motivating, flexible, a great teacher, collaborator, almost a friend. 🙂 It’s been a beautiful experience for me and I am already signing up for more. Thank you, Kayla, for doing what you do through simply being you & sharing your wealth with the world. The world needs more people like you! XO.

I’ve taken Kayla’s Poetry Masterclass & certainly recommend it. I found the class to be a top-notch learning experience. She draws on a broad reading list during class to pull you into the discussion & to make you think deeply about your own writing voice. I particularly appreciate how responsive she is to each individual’s writing style. Her feedback is focused & constructive. She edits in such a way that you are able to understand how you can better express what you want to say without compromising your intent. You come away with a much clearer sense of what you have to do to refine your work.

Elizabeth Blanchard, Editor & Author


Kayla is a brilliant poet, writer, editor & teacher. I learned so much from her one-one-on mentoring & masterclasses. She respects & brings out the personal voice of her student’s writing. I enjoyed the cultural diversity she weaves into each class & the sensitivity of the weekly readings. I highly recommend her excellent Masterclass course.
