Freelance Travel Writer | Editor | Blogger


Hi, my name is Monica Mizzi and I am a freelance writer and digital marketer.

There is little more that makes me happy than sharing my words with the world.

I was the editor of, one of the largest writing resources on the web. In addition to editing content, I created copy for key pages of the website website.

My true passion, however, lies in travel writing. I have a travel blog ( 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.
