I’ve got a word for you.

Actually, I might have a few.

I’m Meredith Sell, a freelance writer and editor with a dual background in journalism and marketing. Words are kind of my thing.

If you’re looking for someone to guide editorial projects from beginning to end — or if you simply need to offload some writing or editing work — I can help.

Some More About Me

I’m a thinker, crafter, athlete, big sister, aunt, storyteller, and women’s history nerd. I’ve been telling stories for as long as I can remember, making magazines since middle school, and going down internet rabbit holes since my hometown library first offered computer access to kid patrons. I quit my full-time marketing job in 2017 to move to Colorado, and I’ve been freelancing ever since. I write reported stories for publications like 5280 (the Denver magazine), spend way too much time on Twitter, and have a growing stack of books on just about every surface in my office/bedroom.

My professional values: Collaboration, creativity, curiosity, clarity. Oh yeah, and naps.

I’ve written web copy about academic programs, explainer articles about local infrastructure, and narrative stories that bring nonprofits’ missions to life for the reader. I match company voice and tone easily (just give me some time to read and reverse-engineer your work). I can easily pivot from no-nonsense, informational web copy to fun, playful email campaigns.

I bring creativity and strategic thinking to every project that I work on, and everything I write aims to provide value to readers.

I’m known for beating deadlines, delivering clean, original content, and being responsive to feedback. I take a customer service approach to my work, helping my clients think through exactly what they’re after and how my words can help them get there.

Need help?

My client list is open right now. If you need help with words — for a guerrilla marketing campaign, company newsletter or publication, content offer on your website, etc. — message me.

I’m especially interested in copywriting, corporate/nonprofit storytelling projects, editing gigs, or projects with a focus on content strategy. Extra points if there’s a chance to collaborate with designers or web developers on unique visual or interactive projects.
