Real Testimonials.

“This past January, I reached out to Laura to edit and revise a grant application. She was able to take my initial draft and transform it into clear and concise language while also elevating my initial ideas by providing more details and examples. Best of all was her turnaround time! Grant applications have tight deadlines, and I appreciate her quick service.”

Real Testimonials.

“Laura of Durango Wordsmith provided a careful, thoughtful sensitivity read for my novelette. Working with her was a joy. She gave me much to think about regarding the portrayal of Native American characters and had good suggestions yet was never prescriptive. She is professional and thorough, and her input enhanced my story."

This Is How
I Work.

As a professional writer, editor, and writing coach, I specialize in business communication. This means that I work with businesses and content creators to craft website content, blogs, marketing collateral (such as letters, postcards, EOYA campaign materials, etc.), proposals, grants, resumes, cover letters, magazine articles, press releases, and more.


Personal Touch

I never start a project without an in-person, phone, or Skype chat. I get to know you, so we can lay the foundation for a strong business partnership.


Your Voice

I spend time asking questions, listening, and reading your work to identify your brand's voice.


Your Audience

I analyze your audience through keyword research (SEO), interviews, and data analysis.


Content Creation

I help you create content that shows your expertise and speaks directly to your clients.
