Melissa Fagan

Writer, editor, content producer

I've been working as a writer, editor and content producer for fifteen years.

I mostly write for publications and clients in the travel, not-for-profit and health sectors, but I have also worked within the arts & entertainment, education, and government sectors.

I could write for you, too, if you'd like me too.
