I'm a veteran journalist whose résumé includes stints at a digital news startup, two alt-weeklies, a D.C. daily paper and the Legal Times. I recently left life in the newsroom to pursue freelance writing and editing full time.
Sarah Kelley recently made the leap to full-time freelance after 17 years in the newsroom. She previously helmed the editorial operations at Insider Louisville, an online local news startup, and LEO Weekly, Louisville's alternative newsweekly.
As a reporter, Sarah has pursued a wide range of beats, though much of her long-form writing has focused on criminal justice — from covering federal courts in Washington, D.C., to investigating prosecutorial misconduct in capital cases.
