Our Story

We are a diverse group of writers offering content and copywriting for small business, social enterprises, and nonprofits. We are based in the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore metro corridor.


Karen founded The Allyson Group in 1991 in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her first jobs out of college put her inside award-winning graphic design firms. There she developed an appreciation for great design and subtle, elegant typography.


The Allyson Group's services back then were writing, copyediting, book editing, early self-publishing, and media relations.

In the beginning we wrote company newsletters, annual reports, and marketing copy. The primary tool of the trade was the Selectric typewriter. But soon enough came the PC: the MacIntosh, the IBM (with the DOS operating system), and the IBM clone.


Today, we have come a long way. Websites, blogs, and social media are all well integrated with an organization’s core marketing program.

All these platforms require content. That’s where we come in.


Call us to discuss your project, large or small. Let's get started with just a conversation and an analysis of your needs.
