Who We Serve

Goverment Communications

Your mission is critical.

We communicate your mission clearly.

You need content to convey your work to the public, from fighting COVID-19, to administering Medicaid for the needy, to keeping America safe from terrorists. But you are too busy to worry about proper sentence structure and punctuation.

Our team works on deadline to make your complex topics clear. We can fine-tune your documents—proposals, research papers, evaluations, and everything in between—with precise rewriting and editing.

Major products in our portfolio include refining policy documents on national issues such as the opioid crisis and formal apprenticeship programs, and local crises such as hunger among vulnerable populations in Colorado.

What People Are Saying...

  • 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.

    Sherri Greeves, Director of Academic Partnerships

    Foreign Policy

  • 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

  • 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

    Brookings Institution

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

    Kip Patrick, Senior Director, Advocacy and Communications

    Clean Cooking Alliance, United Nations Foundation

  • 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.
