Make your communications effort count, with targeted content that supports your business goals.
Ads, video scripting, web copy, newsletters, media releases, editorial - you name it, I've done it.
No matter how complex your content, I'll make it easy to read with just the right tone for your audience.
I trained as a journalist and worked in corporate communications before co-founding one of New Zealand's first digital content companies, Writeclick, in 2005. It was the early days and we still had to explain what 'content' was. Imagine!
Writeclick was on the government's web services panel for technical writing. I'm very proud of what our hard-working team achieved over a decade: engaging, useful content for scores of high profile organisations and brands.
These days I freelance from Hawke's Bay for clients all over New Zealand.
Here's some of the work I can share.

What we appreciate most about working with Melua is her ability to understand the nuances of our organisation, her superior communications skills, and her ability and willingness to go the extra mile.Lauren Gibson, Opus International
We had an impossible timeline. Melua was unflappable and moved mountains for us… delivering beautiful, easy-to-understand words and more. Not only did she deliver, but kept us on time, on track, and smiling. I’m happy to recommend her wholeheartedly.Lisa Wilde, Beef + Lamb NZ
Timeframes are tight, expectations are high and we didn’t consider anyone else for the job.Emma Saunders, Empathy
