I’m represented by Linda Camacho at Gallt & Zacker. I studied Radio/TV/Film and History at Northwestern University, and my name can be found in the “Special Thanks” section of several award-winning documentaries. I completed my MFA at Vermont College of Fine Arts in Writing for Children and Young Adults. I am the 2018 Katherine Paterson Prize winner from Hunger Mountain Journal for the Arts for my young adult short story, “Don’t Quote Me.”

I grew up in Ohio just outside Cleveland and now live in New York.

Write me at melissa (at)!
