Melinda Clynes

Freelance Writer

United States of America

For 25 years I’ve worked as a freelance writer, providing communications/editorial expertise for organizations. I also write and edit features. The business and journalism aspects of my work each bring different challenges and rewards.

My for-profit and nonprofit portfolio includes web content, newsletters, brochures, video scripts, leader bios/profiles, press releases, and annual reports. Current and past clients include a host of great companies, from public relations agencies to land conservancies to graphic design houses, staffing firms and food banks.

Being a freelancer suits me well, as I like having many plates in the air! I'd love to learn about what you do and see how we might work together.
