Author, blogger, workshop leader, speaker
I am a creative professional who has spent my life working in the visual arts and the written word.
All my life, I have been in love with language and the possiblities it presents to make things better.
Language is the most potent tool there is for creating meaningful change and success.
The message and its importance are enhanced
when the truth that lies in fine distinctions is embedded in the writing.
Attention to detail, and producing top quality results in everything I do,
is my promise to myself and to the world.
When I am creating copy, the focus is on the use of language in a precise way to meet the needs of the markets that clients want to serve. Each marketplace has a different communication style, and I tailor the messages to the specific environment.
When editing, I keep the tone of the author and use my knowledge of language to light up the voice of the author. I pay close attention to detail and keeping consistency with the message when I work with clients.
When designing systems for author support, I use templates and questionaires
to guide the process in a way that suits the needs of the project. No two writing projects are alike. I design custom systems that break things down into simple steps to move you across the finish line. You don't have to go it alone!
Here are some of my happy clients talking about their results:

I knew if anybody was going to finish the job, it would be Betty Withrow.
The late Gina Estrada,
Betty is able to take a message to a different level by using her knowledge of words and language to edit materials to give the message clarity and it make it easy for the reader to grasp. She can take materials from one medium and translate them to another for different purposes and works with the author to be clear about the intent of the writing.
Johanna Alper, Medicine Buddha Coaching,
Betty wrote some emails for me. She’s great!
David Roter, Massage for Wellness,
I've been an entrepreneur since the age of 16, working as a fashion professional, as well as in ranching, food service, and as a writer.
For 47 years, I was a homesteader in Big Sur, California, doing whatever was needed to make the day work, running local businesses and raising a family.
Every day of life is filled with action in the wilderness, and I used each moment to its best advantage.
I learned from Nature that no excuse will do, and I take that lesson forward in life.
I have been a blogger since 2013. I have published many articles using online platforms and as a guest blogger, also serving as editor for proessional organizations in their newsbriefs and communications.
It has been my honor to edit books for prominent professionals in their fields, and to write web site copy for top consultants.
I have worked with the team that drafted the planning process for the Californaia Coastal Trail, Big Sur Section, from 2014 until the present.
With three published books, I am currently working on several new projects.
