I believe …

I believe in the transformative power of a strong relationship between the writer and his or her editor. I believe this editorial relationship needs to be a fun and inspirational one. I believe in keeping an open mind so that the story can be nurtured and the author’s voice can be honed. I know revision can be hard and sometimes deflating, but I believe that revision can also be fun, empowering, and life-changing—it’s all in how we choose to look at the process. And it is a process! Let’s make it a good one.

I’m Val Mathews, your host at the studio. I understand that sometimes writers just need to talk. So, let’s get started. Sign up below. Talk to you soon! In the meantime, check out my about page.

Warm regards,


Imagine the Possibilities!

Let's get this conversation started.
