Whatever the nature and size of your business, you’re competing in a world where every word counts. In every document you produce you need just the right language, stated in a clear and compelling way to communicate effectively with management and staff, your customers, contractors, lenders and investors.

A well-written piece can make the difference between getting your point across or not, between success and failure. This is where we come in. Send us material that you’ve been using or a draft document. We’ll take a look and give you detailed, helpful comments that will make it even better.

Our Skills Table

Hey. This is what we do…

Let’s talk about what you need. Email, call or text us. (Click on the talk link for our contact information.) Our services are priced depending upon the nature of the engagement – and what you organization can afford.

*Including, when necessary, doing the research on which these documents – such as speeches, op/eds and position papers, are based.

**What are we talking about? Well, marketing is about selling products and services. An economic initiative has to do with economic development, on any scale, whatever the locale, and with government policies that affect employment and income. Political initiatives have to do with elections and with influencing the behavior of elected government officials. And social initiatives have to do with influencing how the public thinks about the social issues of our time. And yes, these categories often overlap.

Initiatives

There is something we do that differentiates us from the competition in a big way.

Sure, it’s true that we are really good at writing and editing for our business, political and other non-profit clients and that advantage would be reason enough to hire us. But then the really interesting thing about Writeaway is that we sometimes use our writing, editing and creative marketing skills to effect change.

Business Writing

You won’t find “business writing” or “commercial writing” – except books about it – on the shelves at Barnes and Noble. None of it will ever receive the Nobel Prize in Literature nor will Dreamworks or Disney turn a business proposal or manual into a major theatrical release. But it’s nonetheless important to our economy – and your wallet.

Companies, large and small, write all sorts of stuff, constantly, including everything from routine emails to operating manuals to important documents defining company procedures and policy. Whatever the scope of your enterprise, great ideas are still born of words written on fast food napkins and laptop screens. In no small way, words are the molecules of profit, the chemistry of success or failure.

Hello people running or thinking about running for office.

Elections don’t just happen on a given day. They’re an every day, ongoing process.

The most successful candidates are always running for office… always keeping their constituents up to date and well-informed.

Good news. Political writing – and editing what you’ve already written – is one of our specialties.

In no particular order, we do… Campaign strategizing. Palm cards. Mailings. Campaign website content. Print ads. We write radio and television commercials. Well-researched and publishable position papers. Debate prep. Compelling speeches that will have voters on their feet and clapping wildly. Op/eds. Constituent updates for our clients who already hold elected offices.

Everything we do for candidates is affordable and well worth it. The campaign strategizing is free.

Want to get elected? Call us. The sooner, the better for your campaign.

Welcome to
Writeaway
443-844-3160
Call anytime, evenings and weekends included. If you get voice mail, just leave a message and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible, usually within 24 hours.  Or feel free to send us an email to Contact@Writeaway.us.

P.S. A couple of other things you should know…

We charge all our clients according to what their campaigns can afford – and will, sometimes, help them raise the campaign contributions they need to pay for our services.

All our communications with clients are strictly confidential. We never talk about the work we do for any of our clients, not even their names. You can refer Writeaway to others of course, but we’re never going to use your name for promotional or other purposes.

Democrats or Republicans, we don’t care as long as you’re good people.

And we never, ever work for more than one candidate in a given race.

Question… We’d like to hire Writeaway to be available whenever we need a document edited. Or written. But we don’t want to pay on an hourly basis or per document. Can we just reserve a block of Writeaway time every month? Whether we use it or not? To use whenever we need it? Even a little bit here, a little bit there? And at a discount below the hourly rates you normally charge? Like we were hiring Writeaway to be a part-time employee, but without all those extra employee-related costs?

Answer… Sure.

Content?

Notice the question mark in the title to this post? It’s there to make a point. “Content” is a word that is overused and under-defined in our business. So let’s fix that.

Technically, it’s the stuff – the written words and images – the contents of a piece published on a website or blog. We’re creating content as we type this.

Problem Solving

Our primary business is helping our clients solve problems. It’s something we do with research, creative thinking and marketing, by using language to convince key people and the public at large that what our clients are asking makes sense and deserves their approval and support.

For example, here are just a few of the types of problems we help our clients solve.

Political campaigning You want to get elected, but nobody knows your name and the incumbent has an obscene amount of contributions you can’t possibly match. We know what to do, how to work with your campaign and within your budget to help you get elected – if not this time, next time.

Hi.

Email us a document.  No more than 2500 words or about 5 single-spaced typed pages.  Send it to Contact@Writeaway.us with a cover note explaining that document’s purpose.  We’ll read it and email you back with our comments and suggestions.  For free.  No charge.

Don’t have a document to send us because you need help writing it?  Or maybe you’re not sure what messaging and marketing tools would be the best, affordable way to make your point?  No problem.  Email us a description of what you’d like to accomplish and we’ll get back to you with our comments and estimate of the costs and timing.

Oh, and if you prefer to talk to us face-to-face, that’s fine.  Even better.  We can do that over the phone or via Zoom, whatever works best for you.  We’re busy like crazy, so please email us first to set up that call.

See “It’s free.” for details.

It’s free.

Send us something you’ve written or have had written for your company, campaign or non-profit initiative. Something important. Something that you need to sell whatever you make or do, to raise capital for your business or funding for your campaign. Something that is meant to convey an essential message.

We’ll take a look and let you know what we think and how, if we have any suggestions, the document might be improved. No charge. It’s good will. After all, the more helpful our comments, the more likely you are to do business with us later and recommend Writeaway to others in need of writing and editing services.

Here are the rules…
