Welcome to CodeWord Communications

CodeWord Communications is a “words first” creative content firm specializing in editorial services that help you get noticed.


Why “words first”? The tagline emerged from realizing that some organizations start with form or image, with content as an afterthought. That’s not a very nice way to treat words.


With over fifteen years in business, CodeWord is a champion for words, or more specifically, storytelling.  A “words first” approach means honing in on narratives that will intrigue your readers and customers, and then translating those ideas into snappy content.


Clients in many sectors, from higher education to business to government, have already trusted the expertise of CodeWord Communications and its founder Suzanne Bowness for projects that include magazines, articles, blogs, brochures, annual reports, news releases, and web content.


Do you want to give words equal power too? Let’s start a conversation about your next project – contact CodeWord Communications today.
