Areas of Expertise
Sarah’s areas of expertise include:
“Ms. Mitchell is meticulous in her prose, ensuring that every ‘I’ is dotted and ‘T’ is crossed; it is clear that she takes pride in her writing. Ms. Mitchell is a woman of high character, and this shows in every piece she writes. I can honestly say that of the numerous writers I edit, her work is always well written and requires very little, if any, editing from me. Simply put, Ms. Mitchell makes an editor’s job easy.
With this in mind, any writer who self-edits this thoroughly prior to submission is clearly a good editor herself. Ms. Mitchell’s command of spelling, grammar, and punctuation is topnotch, and her ability to organize an article into a seamless flow of information from paragraph to paragraph is brilliant. She has a keen eye for the little and the big when it comes to composing and organizing her work; a skill that others would no doubt benefit from..”
“Over the past year, I have had the privilege of working with Sarah Mitchell, a renowned freelance writer who specializes in product marketing and catalog copy. I hired Sarah to produce copy for our vast selection of more than 100 million products. From day one, Sarah was the shining star on my network of 20 writers. I’ve been in this industry for a long time, and trust me; you only come across writers like Ms. Mitchell once in a blue moon.
Sarah is a dedicated professional committed to achieving results while understanding the complexities that exist in larger organizations. Our system had multiple flaws, such as a lack of CMS and electronic payments, but Sarah was always willing to adapt and work with us during tough circumstances. I believe Sarah’s strengths include the ability to follow directions and produce clean, readable text that requires minimal editorial oversight. She truly understands the importance of producing engaging text that improves click-through rates while not making the copy overly salesy. Once given a style guide and editorial instructions, Sarah required little coaching, but reached out when she had questions. In many ways, she was a dream writer. It was a blessing, because I could always expect her work on deadline, without having to send reminders.”
