    You can use Open XML which works fine
    (can be done with Office Interop too, but it needs Office to be installed)

    Basic sample : Create a word processing document by providing a file name

    Install the following NuGet package DocumentFormat.OpenXml.

    Try creating a new document

    using (var document = WordprocessingDocument.Create(fileName, WordprocessingDocumentType.Document))
     {
        MainDocumentPart mainPart = document.AddMainDocumentPart();
        mainPart.Document = new Document();
        mainPart.Document.AppendChild(new Body());
    
        mainPart.Document.Save();
     }
    

    The above is taken from Office Word Basic operations: Open XML SDK 2.5 Office Word documents with source code in the following repository project.

    EDIT: Code sample to create a new document and write a single paragraph.
