The Editor You Always Wished You Had to Review Your Writing

Designed by legal writing expert and New York Times bestselling author Gary Kinder, WordRake has helped thousands of law firms, corporations, universities, publishers, and government agencies create clear, concise documents and emails.

As a writing expert and coach, Gary uncovered patterns in writing errors and was inspired to create a solution to address those writing errors using technology. He analyzed the writing of Pulitzer Prize-winning novelists, writers in Esquire and Vanity Fair, and Supreme Court Justices.

The sophisticated software Gary developed alongside engineers is backed by 11 U.S. patents and includes over 35,000 editing algorithms.
