Hello, I'm Melody

I support emerging makers and promote their creative practices.

I run a creative consultancy that focuses on communication skills, particularly writing. I offer support to makers in finding their voice, communicating their practice and writing effective and exciting text for websites, applications and social media.

My approach is a friendly, conversational collaboration centred on dialogue and underpinned by a passion for communicating about making.
