Writing and Editing
At Sagely, we write stories, bios, and website content for a variety of clients and we provide writing and developmental editing services for authors and academics. We offer tailored copywriting services for small businesses and nonprofits, focusing on mission-driven organizations. Sagely’s founder, Lesley Curtis, also partners with brand specialists to offer a helpful brand messaging package that is ideal for anyone just starting out or going through a re-branding process.
Most of all, Lesley specializes in helping people figure out where they are stuck. By listening closely and collaborating with clients, she identifies how their story fits together, creating a cohesive narrative for clients and often helping them see their work with new clarity.
