    • Bravo! I needed an appealing and professional online portfolio - but I'm a business writer, not a web designer. WR provides a turnkey solution that gets results. Monica and her staff are honest and savvy. They have a product here that every smart writer should consider.

    • Writer's Residence definitely allowed me to highlight my writing and experience and was pivotal for me landing early communications roles.

    • From a techno point of view, Writer's Residence is the only host I could build my website on after trying Network Solutions, Wordpress, Wix, and Squarespace.

      Deb Lehman
    • I tried, Blogger and kin: wonderful for the amateur blog but not for my professional business. I stumbled upon Writers Residence and am so glad I did. Their design has won me nothing but praise and jobs.
