Madelyn Nelson

Writer/Editor & Social Media Manager

My name is Madelyn Nelson and I am based in sunny Tempe, Arizona! I graduated from Arizona State University in May 2018 with my BA in Political Science with minors in Spanish Language and English Literature. I also have a Writing Certificate which has allowed me to explore various forms of writing as well as technical editing and revising.

I have 2+ years experience in a variety of areas, such as copy and content editing, journalism, marketing communications, academic, and creative writing, among others. More recently, I have been branching out into Social Media Management and digital marketing. I also have a solid foundation in written Spanish language and translation.
