Capability Statement

Core Competencies:

            The Word Process is a ten-year partnership between two long-time women journalists and writers. Both published book authors, we have written everything from Web material to television/radio scripts to news stories to long reports. We have also addressed a variety of audiences from stakeholders to children. We have considerable developmental editing experience and can cut through jargon to make complicated material comprehensible to lay audiences.

            As published authors, we deliver a level of quality that most government and business writer/editors do not. We are meticulous about the work we do. We write with clarity, pay attention to detail and avoid jargon. We are adept at taking technical material and making it understandable to lay audiences.  When editing, we re-organize material, smooth out awkward sentences, and ensure that meaning is clear, as well as correct punctuation and grammar. Because our background is journalism, we are used to meeting strict deadlines and to working under pressure. We can deliver quickly.


Who we are:
