Testimonials

“I worked with Mel for a little over a year and she was an absolute pleasure to work with! Mel was a regular contributor, her posts were always well written and within deadlines. She has a fantastic writing style; whether it’s fiction or personal writing. I loved every single one of her posts and so did our audience. When she approached us with an idea for a column, we were absolutely thrilled. Her posts were fascinating and relatable. Ultimately she was an asset to our magazine and I would not hesitate to work with her again.” Tara Costello, Social Media Manager and co-founder of Zusterschap.

“I’ve worked with Mel for many years. She has helped judge the To Hull And Back competition since it was launched in 2014. Her insight into the art of writing short fiction, and creative writing in general (both fiction and non-fiction), is something I have come to value greatly. She regularly critiques my work and isn’t afraid to tell me when something could be improved. Her comments are always backed up with clear reasoning that goes beyond personal taste – she’s constructive, friendly and encouraging. She’s also proofread and helped me edit my books and the courses I have developed on my website. In short, she’s a total legend.” Chris Fielden, award-winning and Amazon bestselling author, blogger, drummer and digital marketer.

“Mel demonstrated a strong desire and ability to learn and improve her skills quickly and easily, often going above and beyond the call of duty. She never missed a deadline, and she always responded positively to any constructive feedback, making any amendments in a timely and effective fashion. She was a pleasure to work with- so much so that I hired her as a freelancer upon her leaving The Content Castle, and we continue to work together to this day.” – Kaila Krayewski, founder of The Content Castle and Archipelago Communications.
