Our Services

Writing & Editing
Brochures or books, newsletters or articles, annual or technical reports, handbooks or Web site content. When you need help with a turnkey writing assignment … the development of “reader friendly” technical materials … ghostwriting … simple or complex editing … or even just the final polish of proofreading, Beyond Words has the expertise and experience with both general and technical writing to meet your needs. We’re a proven go-to writing and editing resource for busy professionals who have something to say.

Journal & Magazine Article Preparation top
Preparing an article for publication can be intimidating, especially when it’s your first. You might have a breakthrough idea or significant research to report. But unless your submission fulfills the expectations of the publication, it won’t be accepted. Beyond Words can help. For years we’ve guided writers to successful publication in peer-reviewed journals and in industry and trade media. We understand the complex and daunting submission requirements, and the ethical boundaries and technical hurdles you’ll face. When you have an article in mind, think of Beyond Words as your guide to success.

Interviewing & Story Development top
Story development is more than relaying information. Done well, stories engage and compel. And telling a powerful story often hinges on a great interview. Asking the right questions … probing … uncovering the heart of a speaker’s response … then writing clearly so the audience relates. At Beyond Words, we understand the art and craft of interviewing and story development. Let us help you tell your story too.

Author Coaching & Consulting top
Many authors simply need a little advice as they begin to pen their work. Others need more intensive support along the way. As an author coach and consultant, we wear many hats. We can help you define and meet your publication goals … nurture your individual voice … offer technical writing advice … help you stay focused when the process is tough. You can trust that we’ll serve as the readers’ advocate, ensuring that you understand how an audience might react or respond. Whatever your writing challenges, we’re here to support you.

Book Editing top
Book editing requires a complex set of technical skills: project management experience … detailed technical expertise … fact checking and research knowledge … the ability to track and balance the flow of an entire manuscript while editing individual pages. But an editor also needs great relationship skills to serve as the author’s partner in giving life to a book. A good editor brings understanding, clarity and correction without diminishing the author’s voice. Editors are coaches, cheerleaders, fans, critics and technical experts all at the same time. Beyond Words has the experience to do this well. Just ask one of the authors we’ve worked with.

Communication Strategy & Consulting top
Communication begins with a solid strategy. When, where and how you deliver your words and images … who you’re trying to reach and why … the results you want to achieve … the answers to questions like these are critical. We can help you develop and deliver an effective communication strategy based on your specific goals and needs.

Writing & Communication Training top
Communication and writing skills consistently top “most-valued leadership qualities” lists. But they rarely make the lists of training programs employers provide. Communicating well can be taught, and we’ve done it. Let us teach you. Topics include business writing … how to get published in peer-reviewed journals … do-it-yourself communication planning … even overcoming writer’s block. It’s practical. It’s hands-on. And it works.
