Hi, my name is Monica Mizzi and I am a freelance travel writer, editor, and blogger.
There is little more that makes me happy than sharing my words with the world.
I am the editor of FreelanceWriting.com, 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 am 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 (typingtotaipei.com) 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.

We'd all like to believe we have the Internet prowess to detect when something fishy is going on.

The time leading up your big day is riddled with excitement and the stress of tackling pressing tasks. So, it's no wonder you have limited time to spare for much else. But what about those uncomfortable (but important) issues you've avoided talking about with your partner?
