Kyle Marie

A “literatus” is a person interested in the arts and literature. I have been a member of the literati since I learned to read at a young age. My appetite for books knows no bounds. My passion for literature soon transferred to my studies where I changed directions from business to English literature. After graduation, the business side pulled me back in where I quickly climbed the ladder to Project Management. Luckily, I was able to continue writing and editing with a diverse set of documentation and business-related work.

In 2019, I took the opportunity to shift directions back to my true passion: editing and writing full-time—honing my skills with the help of a certificate program and constant reading about the craft. In addition to gaining wonderful repeat clients, I’ve had the opportunity to judge book contests for Writer’s Digest and contribute essays in anthologies with the Triangle Association of Freelancers. Locally, I teach writing classes for adults and teens and am the associate editor for 5 West, part of the Midtown family of magazines.

I am confident that my gregariousness and approachable style combined with my expertise and experience make me a great choice to help you polish your work of art or speak at your next event.

Besides being a lover of books, here are some other fun tidbits about me. I was born and raised in the great state of Iowa. Go Hawkeyes! I live with my husband, two sons, and labrador (Rosie Cotton) in the Raleigh/Durham area in North Carolina. When I’m not reading or editing, you can find me writing, playing video games, or knitting.
