We believe in and have experienced first hand the power of a strong relationship between the writer and the editor. We believe this editorial relationship needs to be a fun, nurturing, and inspirational one.

I’m Val Mathews, your host at the studio and the editor in chief of Exit 271: Your Georgia Writers Resource, the digital magazine sponsored by the Georgia Writers Association. The editors and I at Exit 271 understand that sometimes writers just need to talk. So, let’s get started. Sign up above. Talk to you soon!

Happy Writers

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.

Stephanie Baldi, Fiction Writer

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.
