Wordswork Communications is a full-service freelance writing and editing business that specializes in the agri-food sector.
I'm Lois Harris - the business owner and principal writer, in charge of operations, marketing, scheduling and office cleaning (only mine though, and sporadically). I've been writing and editing for a startling 30+ years.

If you need compelling, authentic stories that inform, entertain and enlighten, why not contact me?
