Start here

Hi! Thanks for stopping by. I’m Mel. I consider myself a “jill-of-all-trades” writer. When I’m not crafting bespoke, branded content for my freelance clients, I’m writing my Southern lit novel, Escape Artist.

In other words, writing is my day job, my side hustle, and my hobby.

Freelance Writing

I’ve worked for over 20 clients in various niches, including education, mental health, English language, and social media. Current clients include Wag! Walking, Study International, and ZyraTalk.

Content Editing

I’ve managed two separate teams of freelance writers for two of America’s fastest-growing startups. I delve deeper than surface-level editing to ensure all content is coherent, cohesive, and 100% on-brand.
