Everyone has ideas to share.
Clearly and accurately communicating those ideas can present challenges.
I offer writing and editing services for your business, school, or creative projects.
My free consultation approach ensures that I help you achieve your goals.
Now let’s get to work!


My name is Valerie, and I’m the owner of Writing Help KC.
Language is my forte and hobby.
I am thorough, reliable, and patient.
Thanks to my creative mind, I can write high-quality, unique work.
My eagle eye for detail makes me an outstanding editor.
I taught and studied English, specifically writing and grammar.
Helping others to communicate more clearly is fun for me.
Ice cream and traveling are two of my addictions.

“Val’s spark for creativity and razor-sharp content propelled our fundraising campaign to the next level.”

Andrea, Advancement Office Director

“Valerie is an amazing writer. She is professional and patient with me. Writing is not my strong area and I get intimidated by the technical grammar as an English language learner. She makes writing enjoyable and the story come alive. She is dependable and gives more than what I expect.”

Marisa Wiruhayarn, Owner of Tasty Thai

“Working with Valerie has been a pleasure. I am writing my dissertation for a doctorate in Higher Education Administration and Valerie is a great resource for both grammatical help and overall structural assistance.”

Dea, PhD student

“Great work Val! Thank you for finishing it up within the deadline. If anyone wants statement of purpose or any academic application help, she is your life saver.”

Prateek, Graduate student applicant

“Val reviewed my resume after I did a major revamp to make it more current. Her suggestions about reordering certain elements for clarity, and her ability to catch consistency issues that I didn’t during my initial revisions, have made the document much stronger. High praise, since I’m also an editor — a second set of eyes is invaluable!”

Christina, Web Editor

“Any writer’s writing can be good to some extent…an editor is needed to help, and it takes a skilled one to make the writer’s good work become the sort of great work which outshines their own expectations. Val is such an editor. She is very supportive, timely, and flexible too.”
