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."

For Writers

For Writers In the process of developing your book? Looking for a new perspective, fresh set of eyes, or better way to organize the content? I specialize in coaching new authors through the writing process. Whether you want feedback on a particular section, ideas for structuring your book, or just need to brainstorm ideas, I can help. Is your book ready for editing? Although ``editing`` sounds intimidating, it shouldn't be! Editing is all about collaboration. Together, we'll work through your text so it is clear and engaging for the reader, showcases your voice, and shares your message with the world. Perhaps you've outlined your story (on paper or in your head), and you realize that you would like to work with a ghostwriter or co-author. In my opinion, ghostwriting is a privilege. It's an honor to help someone share their story or expertise with the world. At the end of the day, the coaching/editing/ghostwriting process all boils down to starting with a strong foundation for our working relationship. Let's explore your work to see if we may make a good writing team. Contact me to set up a complimentary 30-minute Zoom chat today.
