Who We Serve

Creative Communications

You want to create art.

We coach you on the craft of creativity.

You seek to add luster and sophistication to your writing, whether blog posts or poetry. Jack London famously said, “You can’t wait for inspiration, you have to go after it with a club.” We offer help with more delicate instruments—punctuation, tone, and word choice.

Our coaching portfolio for individuals and organizations includes editing a book of poetry, helping a retiree write his memoir about surviving brain cancer, teaching creative writing at a retirement community, and coaching a group of entrepreneurs in effective writing to promote their businesses.

What People Are Saying...

  • Publishing a volume of poetry did not seem achievable. It was your expertise, your enthusiasm, your appreciation of my poetry that made me believe in myself. You encouraged me to stretch myself by having me write from different perspectives. I will be forever grateful.

    Rachel K. May , author

    Tell That to Your Sister

  • Our Foreign Policy academic partners are very pleased with the articles that Katherine and her team produce for our Graduate Guides. I've heard compliments such as, “They do a better job articulating what we do than we do ourselves,” requests to link the article we produce to their website, and overall satisfaction. Katherine does her best to put our clients’ needs first, is collaborative, and always manages to deliver top-quality within our established deadlines.

  • In addition to ensuring that all of our content is grammatically accurate and clear, Katherine takes the time to ensure the accuracy and integrity of the writing, questioning an inconsistency in an argument or suggesting ways to make connections between topics clearer. The professionalism of the editing is top notch, which includes brief, helpful explanations behind her suggestions so that similar thinking can be applied on future work.

    Satisfied Client

  • Best Writers and Editors took a highly technical description of monitoring and evaluation and translated it into engaging language for our website.

  • Katherine masterfully edited several papers by visiting scholars from developing countries. Most of the authors had never written research papers before and needed help providing clear evidentiary logic as they refined their narratives under a tight deadline. In particular, Katherine helped transform a paper by a scholar whose first language was not English, patiently working with the author in both English and Spanish. Having such a skilled (and multilingual) editor was invaluable.
