About Melissa Dempsey:

Writer, content creator, wordsmith; call me what you may. At heart I’m a storyteller—but with a mind for marketing and multifaceted experience in the publishing industry.

Since 2007, I’ve provided copywriting, content strategy, and marketing services for an array of businesses, including shops, boutiques, restaurants, festivals, health care providers, a utility company, and nonprofits of various sizes. I’ve created blogs and ad copy creation, website text updates, innovative social media campaigns, email marketing to boost in-store traffic, eBooks, press releases, event coordination (from ribbon-cuttings to galas), and more.

In addition, I’m a former magazine editor and a published journalist; view my journalism portfolio here. I’ve written for magazines, blogs, and PR/marketing agencies on a wide range of lifestyle topics. In 2016 I published “Intro to Social Media Marketing for Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Brands”,  an e-book teaching the basics of social media marketing in an easy-to-grasp format, and released a revised second-edition in 2018.

When I’m not holding a pen, you can usually find me on a hike, in a coffee shop, at a concert, or spending quality time with family.
