he Write Hand of Ohio was established in 1992 by Audrey Cielinski Kessler and is located in Kent, Ohio, home of Kent State University
and between the Northeast Ohio cities of Akron and Cleveland. Kessler brings to The Write Hand of Ohio nearly 25 years’ experience in writing, editing, document design and project management.
Philosophy At The Write Hand of Ohio, our philosophy is that you can write or design it, but that doesn’t guarantee your audience will read or even look at what you give them. We know that if you don’t speak your message clearly and present it in a format that’s inviting to your audience, your document may end up as nothing more than a dust collector on an office bookshelf. In other words, you lose and your audience loses. You wrote it, but they didn’t read it.
Scope of Products and Services Because The Write Hand of Ohio is a full-service communications company, we can provide you with the range of products and services your need. We can take your idea from concept to finished product, help you decide what you want to say and how to say it, and how to present your information in a format and style that entices your customers or employees to read what you have written. In short, we can do as much or as little as you need us to do.
We will be there when you need us—to answer questions, offer advice and guide you in making communication choices that meet your needs and satisfy your business objectives. Our approach is a flexible on that allows you to make the final decisions for yourself.
So whether it’s a newsletter, a research report or a technical manual, a brochure, a curriculum guide or a directory, we have the skills and the tools to help you say what you want your readers to hear, eliminating the static and keeping both of you on the same wavelength.

What Others Are Saying What others are saying about the quality of our work underscores our commitment to our client relationship, work process and end product that always puts you first. Here is a sampling of these comments:
“I have just had the pleasure of reading the current issue of the Ohio VOTER and wish to compliment you on the quality of the layout and the many design decisions you have so well made. Items which I particularly appreciated: adequate use of white space, a readable type face large enough for old eyes, adequate leading, good use of graphics, rules, wide columns, color, etc. to provide variety and interest without going overboard.
I suspect that most of the readers in some subliminal way appreciate what you’ve done. I just wanted you to know that at least this reader, although still strictly and amateur in this matters, does recognize some of what went into creating this result.
I will save this issue as a sample for my own future efforts and to be able to show others.”
—League of Women Voters of Ohio newsletter reader (October 2000)
