I specialize in humor and empathy.
I can write dry, toast-like words with aplomb (and a plum, if desperate times call for it), but I prefer to partner with people and businesses who want to be more like the picture on the left.
Check out some of the great people I’ve worked with below. I included some nice words they said too.
“Sara writes with joyful language that creates vivid mental images. She’s delightful to work with—we never questioned whether she’d meet a deadline or work to understand the subject matter. If there’s feedback or edits, she’s never offended. Her goal is to leave clients with the best work possible.”
– Ronnie Murphy, VP Client Strategy
“Sara takes feedback like a professional and takes her job seriously…I’ve used [her] to write and edit articles and show notes, and she hits the ball out of the park every single time. The longer she works with me, the more she matches my own writing style and voice—and now I can’t even tell our writing apart sometimes. I honestly don’t know what I would do without her. She has made all of my dreams come true.
– Natalie Hoffman, coach and advocate
“You are an extremely talented writer, and I am always impressed with how you put words together. You are truly a master of your craft and arguably an artist with language.”
– Jonathan Slider, executive director
“I love it. You really knocked it out of the park. It’s gangster!”
“When I sought out Sara, I was really struggling with how to put words together to truly convey the heartbeat of myself and my business. After reading some of the other work she had done, I knew she had an extraordinary gift. Working with her was easy and enjoyable. She asked all the right questions to understand not only the practicality of what I wanted to share, but the emotion I wanted to evoke as well. I am so grateful for the exceptional verbiage she pieced together for me and have already recommended her to several people.
– Rebekah Slider, mindset coach
“Sara has edited an incredible amount of content for me, and not only is her work thorough and clear, she was consistent and timely with her updates. Working with Sara is a pleasure. I am extremely grateful for her work and highly recommend her expertise.”
– Kylar Dunn, author and HeroRising fitness app and fitness coaching community creator
“20 years in business and I’ve worked with countless “marketing geniuses” and “gurus.” They were all overpriced disappointments, spewing the same old tired ideas they mass marketed to all their clients, with no personalization. In contrast, when I met with Sara she took the time to get to know my business, she listened to my wants and needs, maybe more importantly she listened to what I didn’t want to do. What she came back to me with was a customized multi[-]step approach to meet my goals including timelines, imperatives, and subordinate plans. I would highly recommend anyone desiring to grow their business meet with Sara immediately.”
– Michael Jokerst, D.C. CFMP
“Thanks for the depth of detail that you used when copyediting my dissertation. I am a journalism teacher and have been immersed in the world of writing for many years, but I am a newcomer to scholastic style (APA, in this case). You caught a lot of small errors that I would never have seen, especially in such a length[y] document. After writing and rewriting, editing and reediting my manuscript, I just could not see errors any more. I am confident that my APA Style is flawless at this point and I am very pleased with your service. I especially appreciate the fact that you were available for my follow-up questions even after the initial copy edit was done. In addition, your price point was affordable and yet reflected the work of a professional. Thank you so very much for working with me.”– Dr. Karyn Campbell, Ph.D.
“Sara Richmond came to me recommended by a mutual friend and fellow proofreader, who suggested Sara as a good candidate to accept occasional jobs that didn’t fit into my own schedule. The first job I referred to her was a project written by a personal friend of mine, whom I knew to be a stickler for good editing. It was a little like throwing a lamb to the wolves, but I knew that if Sara satisfied THIS client, she was a skilled professional. My friend the stickler was thrilled with Sara’s work. Since then Sara has become a valued colleague, and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for professional-grade proofreading, editing, and/or copywriting.”– Cherilyn Johnson, freelance editor & consultant, Sparrow’s Nest Communications
