Monica Mizzi

Freelance Travel Writer | Editor | Blogger

Hi, my name is Monica Mizzi and I am a freelance writer and digital marketer. There is little more that makes me happy than sharing my words with the world. I was the editor of, one of the largest writing resources on the web. In addition to editing content, I created copy for key pages of the website website. I was also a freelance editor and writer for an American legal company. In my spare time, I have been building up my personal freelance brand by contributing pieces to a number of different magazines, and creating website copy. My true passion, however, lies in travel writing. I have a travel blog ( and from that exposure have completed a variety of freelance writing assignments. I am always open to new writing opportunities, and connecting with like-minded writers.

I learnt the craft of storytelling over 18 years in television production at Australian Broadcasting Corporation working on factual and short form documentaries. My favourite subjects are people who are passionate about what they do. Whatever that happens to be. However I am interested in many subjects including social issues, religion, community, and politics. Helping people share their story is what I love most, it inspires me, and I hope inspires the reader or viewer too.
