Wordwright Editorial Services, Inc., provides a complete spectrum of professional writing and editing support to clients throughout the world.

With more than 33 years of proven writing and editing experience, Wordwright offers its clients comprehensive editorial support, whenever and wherever they need it.

An award-winning writer, editor, and publications manager, Steve McCabe (at right) founded Wordwright in 1993 with the goal of providing his clients with professional editorial support tailored precisely to their needs and fully utilizing his extensive writing and editing experience.

Wordwright has particular expertise and experience providing editorial solutions for the financial services, equipment leasing, and banking industries; the environmental engineering and consulting industries, with a particular emphasis on technical editing and writing in support of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documentation process; the IT, telecommunications, and outsourced customer support industries; and book publishing.


A Small Business, by Choice


 Owned and operated entirely by McCabe, Wordwright is a small company--by choice.  

Toward this end, McCabe handles all of Wordwright's editorial work personally; no Wordwright writing or editing is ever handled by junior staff or subcontracted to others.

McCabe began his editorial career in 1976, when he placed fourth nationally in the Smith-Corona senior short story contest conducted by Scholastic Magazines, Inc. He continued his writing career as an English major at Washington and Lee University, where he was a two-time prose winner of the George A. Mahan Award in writing, in 1977 and again in 1980. He also served as a staff member of Shenandoah, the Washiongton and Lee University Review, where he gained his first exposure to editorial work as a manuscript screener and production assistant for the university's renowned quarterly "little magazine" under James Boatwright.

McCabe continued his academic career in the MFA program in creative writing at the University of Virginia, where he studied under Pulitzer Prize-winner Peter Taylor and National Book Award-winner John Casey. In 1982, McCabe was awarded second place in the university's Jefferson Literary Society fiction contest and received his MFA from Virginia in 1983.

After teaching writing and free-lancing, McCabe moved to Western New York in 1985, where he began his fulltime professional career as a writer and editor. He held editorial positions with three publications of a national nonprofit philosophical organization and also served as a ghostwriter for the organization's president, the late Dr. Isaac Asimov. He also won an NEA grant and served as a writer in residence at Quarry Farm, the Mark Twain residence and research center in Elmira, New York, under the auspices of the Just Buffalo Literary Center in 1989. McCabe contined his editorial career as a technical editor and later managing editor for an international environmental consulting firm for eight years. He continued his career in publications management at an information technology consulting and outsourced staffing firm before founding Wordwright in 1993 and devoting his complete energies to building and defining the company.


Scalable, Seamless Support

All of Wordwright's services are completely scalable to each client's needs.

For example, as an adjunct to a client's in-house editorial staff, Wordwright provides seamless support for special projects or overflow work. For clients without any existing editorial capability or who choose to outsource such functions, Wordwright offers professional-caliber writing or editing support at any level the client might wish.

This complete flexibility in meeting each client's editorial needs efficiently and cost-effectively has made Wordwright a valued partner to businesses large and small since its inception in 1993.


Big Benefits from a Small Business

Moreover, Wordwright clients are always assured of obtaining the maximum impact from every dollar in their publications budget.

Because Wordwright is a New York State Subchapter "S" corporation and a qualified small business under IRS regulations, its clients often realize significant savings by subcontracting their editorial support needs to Wordwright. Wordwright is also registed with Dun & Bradstreet and the federal System for Award Management (SAM) to facilitate subcontracting editorial support with any federally funded contracts. Companies find they save through Wordwright by avoiding the significant expense, paperwork, and comittment associated with hiring, training, and maintaining the productivity of a full- or part-time writer or editor on their payroll.

Finally, Wordwright's all-inclusive hourly rates are among the most competitive in the industry. Wordwright also offers significant rate discounts commensurate with the extent and length of any contract for editorial services.

Professional, experienced, flexible, cost-effective: Wordwright Editorial Services, Inc., is the right solution to any writing or editing task.
