Judy Kellem's Bio
Judy Kellem has lived and worked in various regions and capacities: In Namibia, Africa, as part of a health care program; in Lexington, Mississippi as part of a civil rights organization; in Los Angeles, California, as part of both a crisis shelter for runaways and a TV Network research team. Most recently, she lived in Bologna, Italy, directing a language school and teaching English as a Second Language.

She attended Bard College, took her B.A. from Bryn Mawr College and moved to New York City in 1993 receiving her Masters in English and Creative Writing from City College of New York. Judy spent many years in theatre and human rights work, before devoting herself to writing fiction and studying at the Writer's Studio in lower Manhattan.
Judy has been honored by having a story of hers ("LIMBO") published in READING ROOM/3, a prestigious book which comes out twice a year. It's published by Great Marsh Press of New York and features stories, sections of novels, essays, and poetry by well known writers with international reputations as well as new young writers just coming up. Judy and one other writer occupy the latter category. They are referred to as "New American Voices." They share the stage with the likes of Saul Bellow, Judith Rossner and Stanley Crouch (to name a few).
Judy loves working with fellow writers, traveling the minds, the imaginations and fantasies of new voices. For her, it is a real pleasure to sit down with someone's labor of love and not only enjoy the experience of reading it, but becoming part of the process toward making it even stronger.
Vivienne Kellem's Bio
Vivienne was a British TV and theater actress at one time and has excellent command of language especially as it pertains to theatricality. She has also worked as an educational assistant for years helping children in these areas including lots of reading and writing. She's helped with scripts from time to time over the years under special circumstances. We're now making this valuable service available to all who need it. Cost depends on the work that's to be done. We ask folks to send a few pages so that price and other logistical issues can be determined. Note: If you also want a script consultation, it can also be arranged. In some cases it’s better to do the consultation after the proofreading; in other cases it doesn't make any difference. (It often depends on the nature of the script).
