Write. Share. Transform.
As I worked on writing the book for my law of attraction based program, synchronicities placed Wendy on my doorstep (literally). As a rookie in the writing world, her experience in the industry was paramount to creating a book that I’m not only extremely pleased with, but that my readers also loved. Working with Wendy was a high vibration experience from start to finish.
I’ve just received the essay from Carolan Dickinson! It is AMAZING! She had wonderful words to say about working with you! It is beautifully written and the content is perfect for the book! Thank you for assisting her! I will certainly continue to send authors your way for edits! You’re a gem! Namaste.
As an international independent publisher, I am connected on a regular basis to editors of all classifications ranging from comprehensive, copy-editing, developmental, proofreaders, sales-copy to substantive. Each of these types of professional editors has their own skill set and typically obtain strength in one of the given styles. I research editors often and I am grateful I was divinely connected to Wendy Kitts. In my experience with her I have come to the realization Wendy has the most advanced aptitude and flair in each type of editing. This is typically unheard of! She is accentuated as an Editing Director for the Visionary Insight Press authors and she shares her incredible talent so that each writer, including myself, has the opportunity to share their words of wisdom in an informative, entertaining and comprehensive manner which results in the writer showing up as their best and highest self. We are in gratitude for her and her service.
Wendy is a dedicated professional with her services. She edited a 90 page workbook for a workshop that I have created called LivinForFun. She was prompt and thorough with what I needed her to do, and her fees were very reasonable. She edited the original text I gave her while reformatting and adding simple but powerful graphics. One of the best things that she did was use her experience and intuition to guide me in changing things that didn’t make sense to her. So in the end, what I actually intended came through more clear than my original writing! I would definitely use her services again in the future.
Choosing Wendy as my editor continues to be one of the most important aspects of my writing journey. Her experience, intuition, and great editor’s eye have been invaluable. She’ll make you dig deep and have you expressing yourself in ways you never thought possible. What emerges through the editing process is astounding and liberating. Wendy has a great professional and friendly manner so the editing process is as easy going as it can be. I trust Wendy and know her to be honest and truthful. Most importantly, I know that I can trust her with my work. I’m looking forward to working with Wendy on future projects. Thank you Wendy, you totally rock! I look forward to more unfolding and emerging.
Wendy was extremely easy to work with and responsive! This was the first time I have ever written on a professional level. I was nervous when choosing an editor to work with but all that disappeared after our first email. Her reply times were very fast and attention to detail was great. She helped me bring all my random thoughts and sentences together into a beautiful piece of work. I could not have done it without her. I highly recommend Wendy Kitts if you have a project and you want it done right and look forward to working with her in the future!
You are a Fing GENIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This script is so AWESOME. I can’t believe how great it flows and sounds like a real one man show. I am really speechless. You’re amazing. Thank you so much.
I recently had the pleasure of working with Wendy utilizing her editing services and couldn’t have been happier. Upon receiving the first round of edits back I knew I had found the perfect person for me. She offered suggestions that strengthened the piece while at the same time held true to my authentic voice – which is extremely important to me. Genuine, attentive and committed to excellence, Wendy will ensure that what you put out into the world is powerful and true to you! Great experience – superb editor!
Wendy Kitts is a special Soul who skillfully supports while gently empowering those she works with.Though I have written most of my life, I lack experience in editing my work to meet a publisher’s required format. Wendy asked clarifying questions and offered expert guidance to partner with me in editing my chapter. Even at times when I felt frustrated or deflated, her personal attention, generous time, and seemingly endless patience, inspired me to stick with the process. Together, we successfully improved the structure of my delivery while honoring the heart of my voice and message.Thank you Wendy. I am grateful for you and your contribution to my success as a published author. I look forward to working with you again on my next project!
Wendy Kitts packed her blockbuster course ‘My Life in Pajamas: How to start a career as a freelance writer’ with helpful tips—so many things I didn’t know about freelancing in spite of the fact that I had been doing it for 30 years. I became convinced that if my husband’s pension plan failed, I could live by freelancing.
Wendy’s workshop was fantastic. It showed, without a doubt, you can earn a living as a writer. Wendy inspired us to pursue our writing dreams by seeing the stories in our lives and finding an angle that will appeal to editors.
It’s not just about ‘My Life in Pajamas’ - Wendy opens the whole kimono and tells the best secrets about how to be a successful and profitable writer. A refreshing instructor. Just take the course!
Wendy Kitts, you are a writer-in-training’s dream! Thank you so much for this insight, and for taking the time to provide individual, detailed feedback to me (and doubtlessly to everyone from the workshop who approaches you). You have such generosity of spirit, and true willingness to share and help.
I had never thought about being a writer, but sometimes think I would like to communicate in a more quiet way to a wider audience. Wendy’s experiences proved that anyone can achieve success with the right tools, discipline, respect and determination.Aside from functional literacy skills, I really had no tools, but after the weekend, I feel like I have benefited from her years of experience and that I could certainly launch myself in a writing career. My tool box is now full....Wendy, you are obviously a capable writer but also a very capable presenter.
When I came out of Wendy Kitts’ ‘pajama’ workshop, I felt like jumping up and shouting ‘Yes!’ I received so much good, solid information about how to proceed to get published. Today, I set up a writing area in my den and already sent a submission to a publishing house and entered a writing contest. The workshop was only two days ago. Imagine what I’ll do when I grow up!!
My Life in Pajamas writing workshop was marvelous. You showed what makes or breaks a magazine query and how to write winning query letters. You gave great examples of how to turn one event into multiple story ideas for various markets. And you showed how to discover our niche. Best of all, you explained how you started from total scratch as a non-writer and ended up selling to Reader’s Digest, The Globe and Mail, Saltscapes, etc. In other words, you spurred us to do what we keep saying we’re going to do, but don’t: that is, start right where we’re at, don’t wait for the perfect moment, and keep on sailing from there.
As a novice writer she provided many useful tips on how to begin a career as a freelancer - not only tips, BUT also contacts and publications to approach. It was a very rewarding learning experience. I look forward to beginning a new journey.
I recently attended “A Life in Pajamas: How to Start a Career in Freelance Writing” - I highly recommend anyone who has an opportunity to attend one of Wendy’s workshops to do so. This is one of the most well-presented, interesting, and informative workshops I have ever attended. Wendy makes an excellent instructor. Her warm, vibrant, down to earth personality makes her very approachable, as does her wonderful sense of humour, and she has a genuine warmth and caring for the people who attend. She is very encouraging, supportive, and giving of her time. This is far more than just an occupation to her. She truly wants each person who attends her workshop to succeed. I came into this workshop with no idea of how to proceed in my dream of writing and I left in high spirits. Filled with hope and confidence that I can achieve my goal and equipped with the tools needed to get there. I’m eagerly awaiting her next workshop and will be attending any and all that I can. Thank you, Wendy, for showing me that my dreams CAN become reality!
Wendy generously shares her knowledge and experience with aspiring writers. Her passion and encouragement was obvious and freely shared. Great tips and tools to get started.
I wanted to take a second to thank you again - I was just hired as a casual columnist for the local newspaper here. Just a once a month thing for now but with amazing potential so I’m thrilled. My confidence has built because of you and your workshop. I’m still in awe of you as you are making a living from writing when so many who surround me believe it’s impossible.
Informative, helpful and inspiring! A nuts-and-bolts guide to launching the writing career that’s right for YOU. I left Wendy’s workshop empowered with the conviction ‘that I can DO this!’I credit you 100% for getting me back on the creative path. :)
I am inspired - thank you Wendy for the push I needed. What once seemed so daunting has now been broken down into a very doable process. Can’t wait to get started.
All of the content was useful and I felt it was appropriate for anyone, regardless of their stage of development as a writer. It was amazing that we could all sit there in one place for that length of time completely focused on the topics. This workshop was just what I needed to help me make informed decisions about my future as a professional writer. It’s great to know I have a resource like Wendy, who has the experience which enables her to offer sage advice.
Thanks for a well organized and informative presentation. The slides along with your personal knowledge was enlightening. You gave me a great foundation and lots to think about. I went away with enough material and knowledge to move forward. I also appreciate your offer to help by answering any questions in the future. I can tell you love what you do.
Infinite Possibilities is an empowering look at aspects of our lives we may tend to struggle with. Like a magnifying glass detailing the beauty of a dandelion to ensure we capture the beauty in each petal. This course offered a lot of opportunity to reflect and improve my daily life, to switch focus on what may be slowing me down so I can appreciate why it’s in my life. Wendy was a marvelous host of a fantastic course which worked to empower me and shed some light on dark areas of my life. For that I thank her and highly recommend you participating at your first opportunity!
This workshop seems to have become part of my daily thought process. :) Each day I am making new discoveries....or coming up with more questions. I wanted to thank you, Wendy Kitts, for this opportunity and all that you shared with us. It has been a pleasure taking this journey with you all. I have a feeling that we are nowhere near the end of the sharing and growing.
Perfect! I really like the quality of this program’s product - written materials are really well done, and you have been really good at guiding the discussion and challenging people to work harder on themselves. you are definitely where you should be, if I haven’t already said that!!
I’m thinking about it [work] a lot more positively now. I changed my perception to have a better perspective on my work and how it contributes to my daily life. I also realized through the whole process I’ve changed my definition of work and really have taken more ownership and focus on my writing. I can’t make any progress if I’m not taking inspired action and believing that what I want is possible ;)Thanks so much again, Wendy. This course has been truly great and eye opening.
I think the most important story to write is the positive story I will tell myself as a result of today. Yes. I can! An amazing array of tools and exercises from a short, one-day workshop. Thank you for the opportunity to work with some kindred spirits and great people. Thank you for creating a safe place for us to start our adventure.
OMG!!!! So super thankful!!! I loved the personal stories and real-life inspiration that you do this for a living when not initially on your radar. The intimacy of all of being so different yet so unified!! [What was your biggest takeaway?] The tingling in my feet. My body’s response to the meditations...I went DEEP!!! Thank you!!! So much gratitude for all experienced!!!
Accessing the Writer Within was a wonderful workshop from start to finish! I have been writing in one way or another every day since I was 6 years old. That’s 50 years of daily writing. I always answered, ‘if you were stranded on a desert island and could take an item with you what would you take?’ with ‘a pen and paper’, however, I never thought of myself as a writer. I simply thought, “I’m someone who likes to write.” Now, I know, I am a writer. This shift at an identity level is a transformation. Your workshop was just what I needed, when I needed it. You presented lots of valuable content in a well-organized manner, and you considered the needs of the group by providing ample time for questions, comments and personal reflection. The various exercises provided an opportunity for me to experience the concepts and the informative handout is a handy reference as I continue to develop my writer within. I appreciated the various strategies you provided, especially the guided meditations. Reading my writing aloud was scary, and I almost said no. Yet, you successfully created a safe space for sharing; I felt supported by you and by the other participants. Reading my writing aloud turned out not to be embarrassing as I feared, instead it was empowering. Thank you!What is my biggest take-away? I am a writer. That belief surfaced the day before the Accessing the Writer Within workshop. Your workshop was timely - it reinforced my new belief, and it provided practical strategies to assist me on my writing journey. I heard the writer within speak to me. That is my biggest take-away.
"In each life, there comes a time, which if recognized and seized, transforms the course of that life forever.
The outcome will be assured, so employ trust, even if the moment calls for you to leap into the unknown."
Penny Lighthall, Three Oracles, on the meaning of the rune called "Dagaz".
Runes are a 2nd century alphabet used as a tool of divination much like tarot.
Think of it as a conversation between you and the Universe.
“Dagaz” symbolizes the day (following the night), breakthrough and transformation.
