Looking for a freelance health care writer? Or a freelance writer for your membership association or alumni magazine?

Let me become your go-to content marketing writer. After starting my career as a newspaper reporter in my home state of Indiana, I remain a journalist at heart, and journalism is behind everything I do—which I believe is critical for content marketing writing and membership association writing. I use my reporter’s research, interviewing and storytelling skills every week, and I remain true to the journalism ethics instilled in me 20 years ago. That’s why I declare: Respect the content.

Let me make your job easier:

  • I fact-check my own articles and run by sources if you require.
  • I’m a skilled copy editor, so I submit clean copy.
  • I provide suggested headlines and subheads.
  • I always deliver on time.

I specialize in:

  • Health care writing (news sites, hospitals and membership associations)
  • Membership association features and member profiles
  • Alumni magazine features and profiles
  • Content marketing articles and blog posts

I also enjoy writing about:

  • Education (and for alumni magazines)
  • Pet and animal health
  • Small business
  • Social media
“Melanie is one of a select few who always come to mind when I have writing and editing opportunities available. I know I can trust her to write highly engaging stories, whether they’re longform narrative features or short profiles, print or digital. I never fear having her contact VIPs, because I know she’s a pro who will represent any client well.” Chris Blose, then-vice president, content, Imagination
