Janet Mendelsohn:  Freelance writer, editor and author  JanetMendelsohn                                                                                           

  • Compelling and Accurate

I’ve worked with Janet for more than 20 years. During this time, I’ve been repeatedly impressed with Janet’s professionalism and her ability to tackle virtually any topic and craft articles that are well-written, compelling, and accurate. Janet is every editor’s dream: a real pro who does her homework, works independently, always turns in assignments on time and—last but hardly least—produces copy that is a pleasure to read.”
