Kit invests knowledge both of her subjects and of her craft into each of her article submissions, making my role as editor not only an easy one, but a pleasurable one as well. Kit understands what she's writing about, whether demonstrating it with perspective on an artist's first album or a legend's latest release. Even if she's writing on a new or relatively unfamiliar topic, she brings a certain insight and appreciation to her work that makes it amenable to readers. One of the most telling aspects of a writer is how that writer accepts — or even challenges with a substantive argument — constructive criticism. In editing her work, I've never found Kit to be anything but accommodating and attentive to what's ultimately in the best interest of her writing.

Kit is the consummate professional. She responds to e-mail correspondence in a timely manner and produces excellent work! It is apparent and obvious, by reviewing her work, that she is very attentive to detail(s). Kit's writing is very conversational in its tone -- enveloping the reader as if they were invited into her home and engaged in a one-on-one conversation. In a nutshell, Kit's output is amazing.
Freelance Writer and Educator
Kit O'Toole has written numerous reviews for our musical artists that not only demonstrate her knowledge of music but a willingness to investigate and support each artist. Not only that but she is delightful to work with as she communicates clearly and cares about the articles and reviews she writes. She also understands deadlines and the importance of a well constructed review which makes her a valuable resource to our company. Kit takes the time to research the artists and genres of music so that she can write intelligently and accurately which is something that is lacking in other writers. She also knows how to carve out her own original story from the press releases and materials we send her instead of regurgitating what she has already received from our company press kits. Kit is an excellent communicator, writer, and has a great attitude at all times. She knows how to build relationships with her business associates. Kit is a consummate professional that I would recommend to any publication that is seeking a writer for articles, reviews or other types of content.
