You have something wild in you—something that needs to be said—but need help getting your thoughts in order.
You know the story you want to tell but aren't sure how to get it effectively and powerfully onto the page.
You've written a story, but it isn't getting the response and attention you dreamed it would.
Your story is on the page and awesome, but it needs to be edited for grammar, and you're afraid you'll lose your wild voice in the editing process.
You want writing to be a joyous and connective experience to both ensure you complete your project and that audiences connect to the final product.
“Katiedid is a story genius with a side of dialogue mastery. Ignore her at your own peril. ”Henry, screenwriter "Standoff at Sparrow Creek," "The Awareness"
“I could have saved $55,000 in grad school if I had met Katiedid earlier! I learned more in my 2-hour coaching session than I did in the whole 2 years of getting my Master's degree!”Iris, writer and playwright
“I've seen Katiedid's dedication to her writing clients. I've also had the pleasure of watching her clients take the bull by the horns and become full-fledged working writers. Not only will you get your money's worth, but you'll get a stalwart cheerleader for life!”Sadie, Editor in Chief at Script Magazine
“I have worked with dozens of creative people all over the US, and in Europe and Asia, too. Katiedid is the real deal!! ”Shawl, CEO and writer
“Write in the Wild Literary Services is my secret writing weapon. ”Catherine, Anonymous Content, Masters program at Columbia

“I used to be smug about my ability to write grammatically correct work -- my science-based syndicated column and books. That was before David Yontz started copyediting my work. He catches errors in logic and grammatical errors that few editors would. (I think of him as a grammar ninja!) My publisher has copyeditors and staff but I begged them on both of my books they published to hire Dave, because he has my back in ways no other copyeditor would. My column and books are measurably better because David Yontz copyedits them, and he’s a sweetheart of a guy, with great integrity, and really fun to work with. In short, I love the guy, I’m lucky as hell to be copyedited by him, and I strongly, STRONGLY recommend him. Feel free to contact me and ask me about him. (My contact information is on my website.)”Amy Alkon, syndicated advice columnist, author "Unf*ckology" and more
