Our Services


Whether you have broad communications needs or are just looking for great writers to create your content, contact Big Bad Words for a consultation. 

Communications strategy and planning

Some businesses need a simple website and a single brochure.  

Others need a communications overhaul. 

Whether you have a single project or larger communication needs, Big Bad Words can help develop a plan. Depending on your specific goals, we can work with you to be sure you're delivering effective messages to your prospective customers. 

Web copy and digital content

Your web site is a great place to start. We know the web and what makes for effective copy. Talk to us about what products, services and benefits you offer and we'll create the words to tell your story. Search Engine Optimitization (SEO) is part of the deal. 

If you need strategic recommendations on how to organize and present your content, just ask.

Need blog posts, social media and other digital content? We can do it.

Corporate communications and speechwriting

You know what to say, but the perfect words are out there and we can help you find them. Whether you're speaking to shareholders, investors, customers or employees, a great speech can make the difference. Big Bad Words is well-versed in executive-level communications and can help you deliver big-picture messages. We also offer internal communications content development, such as corporate sales training, promotional campaigns and presentations.

Book editing and writing critiques

Writing your first book? Need some guidance on structure, how to create narrative tension, or elements of craft?  Whether you have a novel, story collection or non-fiction project, our editing services provide line-by-line edits and an overall critique with suggestions and recommendations. 

For aspiring novelists with a complete first draft, your critique will offer specific techniques to improve your writing and a plan to approach your next draft. 

Working on a college application essay? Sign up for a 3-part essay development workshop to help plan, write and edit your essay. You'll have a college-level essay that tells a story, demonstrates your writing skills AND sells your strengths to the school of your dreams.

I have an MFA, the degree required to teach writing at the college level, and have participated in some of the most respected writing conferences and workshops in the country. My essay, "Your Friend/My Friend, Ted," was included in Best American Essays 2018.
