“WLS is my secret writing weapon!”Catherine, Anonymous Content, master's program at Columbia University
“WLS has been invaluable to my work. Katiedid consistently has poignant, insightful notes with a perspective unique to her, And, might I say, they are very diplomatically given! With a strong sense of story, Katiedid is able to isolate problems and always has suggestions on how to remedy them, all while maintaining the writer's vision and voice. ”Lily, author, screenwriter DamNation
“Katiedid is not only a talented writer but, just as importantly, a tireless worker. As a professional film and television writer for over 30 years, I know how rare and precious a commodity natural talent is, but rarer still is Katiedid's commitment to the craft of writing. She has the wit to pitch the funny stuff, the good grace to laugh at the other guys's stuff, and the humanity to know that everything isn't always a joke. ”Andrew Guerdat, author, TV writer/creator, Herman's Head
