Projects by Asset Type
News Story

Over the last four years, Sarah has written more than 2,000 articles for a hyperlocal news website for a community of 25,000 people in the Seattle area.

The site's readership has steadily increased to the point where it is getting an average of 5,000 readers per day. They publish from 2 to 5 full (often long) articles daily, and Sarah is one of just two writers on staff.

She has also written for two progressive parenting blogs, and her articles were regularly featured on the Care to Connect site and were picked up by Mother Jones news and other national sites.

For all three websites she adopted an accessible, intimate tone with readers and treated them with respect, operating from the standpoint that they were intelligent, reasonably concerned citizens with an interest in news, lifestyle issues, safety, the environment, culture, and health. She learned to write all types of articles, from court reporting pieces, to crime stories, to business features, to coverage of oil spills.
