Mel Ciavucco, freelance writer and editor


You’ve landed at Write Kerfuffle. I’m Mel. Thanks for dropping by.

I’m here to offer high-quality writing and editing services without the kerfuffle. I just like the word Kerfuffle.

Kerfuffle. Kerfuffle. Kerfuffle. Isn’t it great?

content, copy, blogs and more…

Need words? I’ve got lots of them. I can even put them in the right order.

I can offer:

  • Web content
  • Blog posts
  • Content editing
  • Fiction editing and critique
  • Social media management
  • Ideas and advice
  • A friendly service!

Need ideas for blog posts? Need some help with an ‘about me’ page (nobody likes writing those)? Got articles but need some help with formatting? I can help!

Maybe you’re a fiction writer who’d like to run your story ideas by someone? Maybe you’ve written a short story, novella, screenplay or novel and would like some in-depth feedback? As a fiction writer myself, I know how close you can become to a project – too close to see any plot holes, character inconsistencies and pacing difficulties! I can help.


Choosing a writer or editor is a big decision. You need somebody reliable and adaptable. Somebody interested in you and your work who genuinely wants to help. I pride myself on my strong work ethics and writing pieces I genuinely support and believe in.

My main areas of expertise:

  • Travel
  • Relationships/dating/sex
  • Yoga
  • Holistic therapies
  • Mental health and counselling
  • Gender equality
  • Body positivity, body image and self-esteem

I like to call myself an ethical writer. I take every piece as an opportunity to help people. Content is not just simply words filling up a page but an opportunity to help, inform and inspire people.
