Are you looking for content for your website? Do you want blog, a print feature, someone to write a book or project edit a part-work? Do you need help with editing or proof-reading or someone to help train your staff in how to speak and write English?

Melissa Shales is an award-winning writer and editor, specializing in travel, who is equally at home in print and online, in books, newspapers, magazines or in the cut and thrust of social media and the blogosphere. She also teaches English as a foreign language and is available to talk or teach on travel, tourism and the media.

A former Chair (twice) and now honorary life member of the British Guild of Travel Writers, she is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and was awarded a Winston Churchill Fellowship in 2009.

In 2014, I also embarked on my PhD at the University of Essex, working with Professor Peter Hulme in the Dept of Literature, Film and Theatre Studies. As a part-time student, I won’t graduate until 2020, but meantime, I am thoroughly enjoying adding the academic study of travel writing and creative non-fiction to my portfolio.
