Our wordsmith work covers the literary waterfront. As an independent publisher and full-service communication consulting firm, we are resourced to cover all aspects of the publication process (see our process overview depicted in “bubbles of activity” as Publication Bubbles). At the macro level, publication content needs to be created, edited, shaped, adorned, and produced, and our talent-sets will shepherd and advance projects in any and all phases of the process.
Publication is a marathon, not a sprint. Writing the book is only the start.Jo Linsdell
At a detailed level, see the table below for a listing of specific activities associated with the publication process that Wordsmith Associates undertakes. Of course, most projects involve only a subset of activities, and we are careful to match Wordsmith talents to the specific client needs. One of our important sources of value is to remove hurdles that stand in the way, and this is why we determine at the outset how we can best complement the author’s areas of skill and interest to get the work done.
At Wordsmith Associates, we are quality-committed, action-oriented, and results-driven.

Scoping Work and Pricing Services
To determine how we can best complement the client’s areas of skill and interest, the first activity with a prospective new client is have a preliminary conversation – to talk through the client’s ideas, plans & hopes, to identify specific project objectives, and to assess work that has already been done.
On this basis, with mutual agreement to move forward, we will recommend a project plan, and our proposed work will be priced as part of that (by the word, by the hour, or by the project). Preliminary project plans are developed at no cost or obligation. Once our proposal is accepted by the client, we will work collaboratively to drive the work to successful completion.
Contact Us at any time to set up a preliminary conversation to see how we might partner with you to accelerate your important projects to the desired results. We would love to hear your plans and are ready to assist as needed.
