Tell a Story

I’m a freelance wrKevin Mitchell Head Shot.iter based in St. Louis, Missouri. I tell stories that resonate. I carry over that belief in the power of the story to my PR, marketing, and web clients.

Since starting in 1999, my career has evolved. I’m the author of books and plays, but I primarily write for magazines. I love taking on new assignments from pretty much anybody on everything.

I’ve written and produced tribute documentaries, and increasingly am being called to create web content.

Why Me?

I’m as stunned as anyone that I’ve made a successful living as a freelance writer (and also a musician). In addition to the equally frightening and exhilarating feeling of staring at the proverbial blank page and creating something I’m proud of, I enjoy working with people and have a knack for talking to people.

I listen. I ask the right questions. I make the right choices. I make every deadline. I know when and where to use humor, and not just for the sake of being a wise ass, but because in an article it makes the reader keep reading. In a marketing piece, it can make an emotional connection that allows the message to stick.

My first career choice, Rodeo Clown, didn’t pan out.

Beyond that, my experience as a playwright enables me to write in the voice of the subject, whether it’s a quote in an article, the most appealing and appropriate tone for your web page, or a speech at an industry awards dinner.

American journalist and New Yorker writer A. J. Liebling (1904–1963) said: “I can write better than anybody who can write faster, and I can write faster than anybody who can write better.”

That pretty much goes for me.
