About Us



Located in Marin County, California, Wordsworth offers the combined talents of two media and publishing professionals, Barbara Swift Brauer and Laurence Brauer. Since 1984, our writing, editing, and desktop publishing services have served the needs of clients around the corner and around the world.


Barbara Swift Brauer, MA, began a career in Bay Area publishing in 1975, working with authors, agents, and publishers in a wide range of genres. Herself a poet, her extensive experience as a writer, collaborator, and developmental editor has given her a unique insight into the inner workings of the creative process. She is the author of At Ease in the Borrowed World (Sixteen Rivers Press, 2013). With portrait artist Jackie Kirk, she is coauthor of the nonfiction book Witness: The Artist’s Vision in The Face of AIDS (Pomegranate Artbooks, 1996).
