As a startup, our needs change rapidly. Sophia has kept up with the demands of our company's content and social calendar seamlessly. She has written a variety of pieces for our company's blog and website and each time, the tone is spot on. From more technical articles that deal with explaining our products and services to more personal thought pieces, Sophia has shown a unique ability to pivot her writing style based on the exact needs at hand. She's been able to not only translate the general content and SEO needs that we have, but done so in a way that is still engaging and interesting for our readers. The timely completion of all deliverables combined with her knack for connecting with our audience has made her one of our favorite writers to partner with. Thanks, Sophia, for your consistent commitment to excelling for the team!

Content Manager, Brand Marketing at Mayvenn

Working with Sophia was a great experience from the get-go. She was commissioned to write a piece for my team and we kept topics loose and general in order to allow contributors the creative freedom to tell their stories authentically. Sophia was one of the only contributors I worked with that brainstormed, outlined and sent over a list of concepts a month prior to writing her piece in order to allow for preliminary feedback and direction. This ended up leading to a piece that broadened our topic range and blended beautifully into to our campaign. Sophia was responsive, patient throughout the process, and her writing is beautiful. I would highly recommend working with her!

Her quality is consistent and she's never missed a deadline. I look forward to working with Sophia on future projects. I highly recommend SSM Writing & Editing to anyone in need of writing or editing services.
