import win32com.client
wordCOMID = "Word.Application"

word = win32com.client.Dispatch(wordCOMID)

Then you can use the methods of the word object, provided by the COM 
object definition. Unfortunately I don't know them - you may do a 
research by making a reference to the Microsoft Word type library in 
Visual Basic, declaring the variable of type Word.Application, and then 
watching the code assistant showing the available methods and 
properties. You may also use the object browser.
