The Exit 271 Studio works as an extension of the Exit 271 digital magazine, sponsored by the Georgia Writers Association. We’re a small group of nurturing coaches who make writing and revision fun.


We give writers love, support, and a kick in the pants so they can write more, publish more, and live the writer’s life.


From one-on-one with an editorial coach to behind-the-scenes chat sessions, we’re here to help. Currently, we’re working on building a fun and interactive learning space.

Who knew editing could be so much fun?

We help writers who need love, support, and a kick in the pants. Stay on track!

We’ll kick you in the rear but cheer you on, too.

I found my dream editor! Val's sensitivity to my manuscript made it a pleasure to work with her. She knew exactly what had to be cut and what was needed to make my manuscript soar. Val is easy to talk to and her quick turn around time is a huge plus. I can honestly say after working with Val, I have become a better writer and a client for life.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working one-on-one with Val Mathews. The editing process is so helpful to me as a writer. I completely trust Val’s judgment and spot-on suggestions. Her skills as an editor have made my stories stronger. I highly recommend Val and The Exit 271 Studio to anyone looking for editing services.
