Welcome to the website for Kaylia Metcalfe: copy editor, podcaster, writer, consultant, community activist, occasional painter, and Do-er of Many Things.
I'm a writer (occasionally)
I write... and sometimes people enjoy reading what I have written. My short story collection is available on Amazon. you can get it as a paperback or an e-book. I am also working on another short story collection (sci fi themed), a novel, and a few different children's books.
I'm a copy editor (freelance)
I have a certificate from UC Santa Barbara and I take gigs. I have helped people with newsletters, short stories, websites, campaign materials, essays, and promotional materials. I also do resumes and cover letters. Fees and information can be found here.
I'm a Podcaster
My podcast Pages and Popcorn Podcast features me and my co-host talking about movies that are based on books as well as the original source material. We are both book nerds with English degrees... and we both have a lot of opinions. New episodes drop every other Friday (itunes, spotify, soundcloud, google, etc) and we have a website and a Patreon and a Facebook so you can listen, support us, and stay informed!
I'm a consultant.
I do communications support for a nonprofit, I do social media support for a nonprofit. I build websites and set up forms, fliers, and documents for new business. I do the periodic google/website/email/social media/etc training for seniors.
I have been known to teach creative writing classes, run poetry events, and chair panel discussions on progressive topics.
I'm the Secretary of the Board of Directors for the Central Valley Alliance of Atheists and Skeptics
This is pretty self-explanatory. We have a website. we host events. We are pretty awesome.
I also run a book club, volunteer with the Qistory Project, serve on the PTA, and am the mother to a very active and wonderful seven-year-old. I try to keep up with reading for fun and watch a few TV shows... and I drink a lot of coffee.
Hi! I'm Kaylia and I need a nap!
