The Allyson Group has since 1994 offered writing, editing, public relations, and social media to the Washington, D.C. metropolitan market: D.C. Maryland, and Northern Virginia. Karen James Cody is the principal.
We produce, edit, and SEO-optimize content to be used on:
- brochures and special reports
- RFPs and grant proposals
- academic papers
- and more
We are expert editors and copy-editors, with books, manuscripts, theses, technical and business content, and more in our wheelhouse.
We can give you the complete roadmap to self-publish your book, whether through Amazon or an independent publishing house! Our external partnerships (photography, graphic design, publicity) may save you time and money.
With great writing and strong public relations tactical skills we also help individuals and companies refine core messages and brand their products and services in the minds of customers, employees, shareholders, and the public.
We are publicists who can get earned media for your company, product launch, or event.
In 2014 we added artist representation to our publicity portfolio and represent a small group of visual artists from diverse cultural and artistic backgrounds.
Our bids are based on years of experience and our work comes with a 100% guarantee.
