Hello, I’m Mellany

Content producer + project manager

Mell of many trades

I write for individuals, big & small companies, printed publications, and blogs. Sometimes, I build websites, help bring projects to life, and even create marketing content. Other times, I help aspiring writers tell their story and publish their works.

Producer/ Project Manager

I work with teams to help flesh out their creative ideas and create an execution strategy for podcasts, media projects, conferences, festivals, etc.

Custom Website Design

I specialize in helping creatives, startups and micro-business owners set up their websites (one-page and multi-page), and even train them to manage the back office.

Book Development/Publishing

You have an amazing story to share and you know you want to write a book. I help you take out the guesswork from writing and publishing your book. 



I help individuals and companies meet their timelines with print and digital content in various capacities.

Make Your Content a Priority.

I certainly will.

I wrote a book and published it in 2016. It was scary stuff sharing my story with the world, but it was the catalyst to my healing, the start of a rewarding journey into my creative awakening.

Testimonials & Featured Clients

“Mellany P. was an amazing editor throughout my writing journey. She followed up often letting me know what was due and when. She made sure I was hitting the goals I set for myself and that we set together. But most importantly she was just there as support. Writing my book was scary but knowing I had a dedicated person in my corner who knew what it would take to get this done, truly sped up the progress. I have already started recommending her to colleagues."

Janice Lawrence-Clarke, President @ JLC PRoductions

"Working with Mellany was very informative and I learned so much. My level of clarity was basically zero when I started. My thought process has changed tremendously. I know what I need to work on and what I need to start doing now and for the future. I've already started some of the process and I can't wait to continue. Mellany is very personable and I thoroughly enjoyed my sessions."

Nikita Morris, Aspiring Author

"I’ve always known one day I will be writing a book, but I wasn’t sure where to start or how to begin this process. While doing Mell’s writing class it really helped to clarify all those questions and more. Especially, the mind mapping aspect where you get to see this road map of exactly what your book would be, it's mind blowing. Mellany really covers all the bases from research to publishing."
