Hi! My name is Julie Valerie.
I’m the writer behind this site.

How can I help?

Please remember to leave your name and email if you are seeking a response. I’m a writer just like you. I’m also the only “staff member” behind the 85K Writing Challenge. Okay, okay. That’s not entirely true. Most days, there are two English Labradors snoozing beneath my desk and I have a great team of writer friends on the Editorial Board.

I typically respond within 24 hours, but please understand my response time may be a bit slower after normal business hours and during the weekend when I’m focused on my family. Like you, I’m busy writing my next novel. My 85K Writing Challenge “office” hours are typically Monday – Thursday 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. EST/New York (GMT-5).

I look forward to hearing from you and am super motivated to give you a great experience on the 85K Writing Challenge.

Let’s chat.
