As far as I know, any free word processing apps would be no where near as good as opposed to just purchasing iWork (Apple's version of Word) or Microsoft Office for Mac. It's definitely worth the price to buy one of these if your planning on using it a lot.
Microsoft Office for Mac

Open Office. Free. Google it.

OpenOffice (http://www.openoffice.org) or NeoOffice (http://www.neooffice.org/) are superb, and either is an excellent replacement for MS Office. Both are completely free! Apple's iWork suite is also very good and much cheaper than MS Office, especially if you download the apps individually from the AppStore.

LibreOffice is the way to go... swithed and never looked back.
Same source code as OpenOffice but it works 10x better. They also have localization in many languages which is very nice, very well done.
