kind, consistent editing to get you where you want to be
“Kayla has an uncanny ability to put people at ease…”
Editing & Mentoring
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.

Her feedback is focused & constructive. Kayla 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, Award-Winning Author
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.

Masterclass Courses & Workshops
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
I’ve taken Kayla’s poetry master class course & 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.
Elizabeth Blanchard, Award-Winning Writer
Kayla is a brilliant poet, writer, editor & teacher. I learned so much from her one-one-on mentoring & master classes. 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 master class courses.
Kimberly Gautreau, Poet, Actress & Self-Published Authoress
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.

Projects, Publications & Poet Laureateship
Having a Poet Laureate at the City of Moncton was a long-held personal goal of mine, but I knew that this was a position that needed someone with just the right mix of humility, wit, professionalism & creativity. We found all that & more in Kayla.
Kayla has taken on the post with gusto. Her ingenuity in the face of “unprecedented” times, her connection & empathy to Monctonians, her storytelling, her complete dedication to making sense of the world for the rest of us, well, I can’t imagine anyone better.
It can be tricky terrain, navigating the spaces between languages in Moncton, playing one language off of the other, but Kayla accomplishes this with ease. She has an uncanny ability to put people at ease & ever so gently introduces them to themselves through her poetry.
Dawn Arnold, Mayor, City of Moncton
Kayla did an amazing workshop at our International Women’s Day conference. She was on point, very professional & she loves helping people like me with my writing. I would recommend her to all my customers any given day. Kayla has excellent knowledge in her field of work & is very passionate about writing.
