At the popular movie blog Flickchart, Aric originated and wrote the first several columns for "Reel Rumbles," a long-form feature that pits two popular movies together in a no-holds-barred fight to the death. Okay, maybe that's a little extreme, but you can read his columns here.

Aric also is the current Public Information Officer and Social Media Manager of the Fort Smith Police Department, which serves a daytime population of over 250,000. He has helped create and coordinate multiple bits of positive press for the FSPD since October 2018, including the national campaign behind Police Cat Pawfficer Fuzz.
Last but not least, he has written one horror novel, The Congregation, which, according to bestselling horror author Joe McKinney is "one hell of a good book."
(Don't stop there, Joe!)
"No," Joe says, "scratch that. It's an amazingly vicious, yet beautifully realized exploration of justice and loss and guilt. With The Congregation, Aric Mitchell has proven he's got the goods. He's jumped headlong into the big leagues. This book will run you through the emotional ringer, and I guarantee you'll love every minute of it."
Thanks, Joe. And thank you for checking out this portfolio and considering Aric for your content needs.
