I provide a freelance editorial service which is fresh, smart and client-friendly.

Based in the beautiful and inspiring city of York, I carry out all sorts of work – from feature writing and web copy to manuscript proofing and magazine editing. In fact, you could say I'm a one-stop-shop for all things editorial.

With years of professional writing experience under my belt, I have worked on a range of publications; from university newspapers to glossy architecture magazines.

My writing is sharp, sassy and relevant, with the recognition to back it up - in 2006 I was awarded the Young Journalist Special Prize in the European Union's ‘For Diversity, Against Discrimination’ Journalist Award.

What's more, I was shortlisted for Feature Writer of the Year at the 2007 PPA Scottish Magazine Awards, with the judges commenting on my 'can do' approach: "Melissa covers even the most potentially sensitive subjects with a style that blends information with inspiration. She is a compassionate journalist who fully appreciates the importance of taking a positive perspective on life."

With an award-winning, personal service that also incorporates the best design talent, look no further than Melissa Holmes for all your editorial needs.
