Welcome! Katesawriter.com was launched by me (Katie Altemus) in 2020 to offer editing, writing, and reading services with a careful, caring, and honest approach.

My focus in editing and reading is to provide support and feedback on the nature of your writing with the goal of strengthening your piece, whether it is a brief short story, an essay, a memoir, or a novel. I do not offer advice on publishing, agents, or marketing. My primary interest is helping you tell the story you want to tell in a way that makes others not only want to know it, but to experience it.

My concern in writing is to express a wealth of information with an economy of words, getting your point (or my point!) across not just effectively, but powerfully. Select a menu item above to learn more about what I do or to contact me.
