Freelance Features Writer
I'm a Northern Virginia-based freelance writer specializing in human interest stories and business profiles. Majoring in English with a writing concentration, I spent a semester at WMAL Radio in Washington, D.C., as a programing intern, and then worked as a staff writer for the Reston Connection newspaper, where I wrote the weekly Dining Out column, community events column, and feature stories. For six years I worked as an editor for the National Contract Management Association, the last two as managing editor of Contract Management magazine. After pausing my editorial career to raise four children, I now enjoy writing stories as a freelance contributor while working as an instructional assistant for Loudoun County Public Schools.
Melanie McGee Bianchi is a lifestyle journalist from Asheville, North Carolina. She holds a Gold industry award from the International Festival & Events Association for special-section editing. Melanie was a spelling-bee champ from age 10-14 and won several poetry and fiction contests in her tween and teen years. In her early twenties, she published fiction in the national teen alt-culture magazine Sassy. After a long hiatus, she began writing fiction again; her short story "The Wasted Fury" appears in the Winter 2018/2019 print edition of the international literary journal The Moth Magazine. Melanie has published poetry in Asheville Poetry Review, was shortlisted in two national poetry competitions (Black Warrior Review, 2011; Tusculum Review, 2014), and has published personal essays in outlets including Gateways Magazine and the popular online forum “Scary Mommy.” An essay she wrote about Zelda Fitzgerald, published in VERVE magazine, was referenced in a book by NPR's Maureen Corrigan: "So We Read On: How the Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why it Endures." From 1997 to 2007, Melanie was the Arts & Entertainment Editor of Mountain Xpress, a member paper of the national Association of Alternative Newsweeklies. She went on to edit the regional women's magazine VERVE, a print monthly that included an international fashion photographer in its masthead. Melanie is currently editor of three print publications: Asheville Made, Bold Life, and Carolina Home + Garden. She's written countless articles on the visual and performing arts, architecture, interior design, outdoor pursuits, music, food, and trends, under her own name and many pseudonyms including Austine Miller, Blaise Covert, and M.J. MacAodh. Her most memorable celebrity interviews were with country/Americana stars Loretta Lynn, Patty Loveless, and Gillian Welch. Her favorite career memento is a postcard David Sedaris sent her from Germany showing three giant mice on their hind legs holding paws around an unconscious cat. Melanie’s cottage in the Blue Ridge Mountains has a tin-roofed carport and a backyard filled with poison oak, widow spiders, venomous and nonvenomous snakes, and absurdly large groundhogs that thrive on her failed garden. She is married with a 12-year-old son. She makes pies for fun but her only real hobby is napping.
Translating Social Issues into Human Stories
Journalist - Writer - Content Editor
The first book I wrote won me a Young Authors Award. It was titled "I Don't Want to be Kangaroo Anymore." I came up with the concept. Wrote the words. Heck, I even illustrated the dang book. I was in first grade. I am still working on my next book. Somewhere in between I've managed to get a bachelors in business, a masters in journalism, find true love and create two amazing little humans. I'd like to think I have a decent amount of life experience, but the truth is, just like every other human on this planet, I am forever in "school" - Learning as I go. Seeking knowledge to propel me forward. Hoping to share that knowledge with others through words. I've had jobs as banker, bartender, waitress and laborer at a construction company. I've been a managing editor of a weekly newspaper and a project manager for a custom home builder. I write for a local food magazine and manage a community lifestyle magazine. I love the mystery surrounding an assignment, the confidence to pitch a great story and the gumption to tell a fellow freelancer I know he can do better. If you have read this far, you also know I like to write. To balance this flaw, I take on positions editing...because, well, I am admittedly Type-A and mostly left-brained so it fulfills my need to plan, organize and manage.
Ever since my 2nd grade Writing Workshop, I have been a voracious reader and writer. My creative spirit led me to join the theatre community at a young age, and eventually I began to freelance in film production as well. I am a storyteller at heart. I earned my Bachelor's in English and my Master's in Marketing from Nazareth College. I have spent the last several years in agency settings, working with clients big and small. As a Content Creator, I develop compelling short ad copy, long form blog articles, social media, eNewsletters, web copy, and anything in between.
