Testimonials

Here’s what people are saying about Melissa Dempsey:

“Melissa recently helped me write copy for my website, including boosting SEO. She was great with answering all my questions and made sure that I loved the finished product, even after the job was done. I highly recommend her and will definitely use her again in the future!”
Krys DeRosa, owner Krys DeRosa Photography

“On several occasions I hired Melissa to write press releases to promote my two traveling entertainment companies. Each has its own identity, audience, and messaging. Melissa asked great questions, did research, and captured who we are. I’ve used other writers over the years but no one I worked with has more attention to detail and creativity than Melissa. She also delivered on time if not earlier than expected; her work exceeded all expectations. Going beyond the pages of the well-written press stories she created, she also offered advice on email subject lines and news story distribution. Melissa is not only extremely talented and effective but a joy to work with.”
Frank Marquette, Executive Director Murder Café and Theatre on the Road

“Melissa has the rare ability to compel a reader to keep reading, even in a world of decreasing attention spans. She understands the heart of a place, an experience, and the value that each provides. She gets to the core of what makes something special and brings it to life with the written word. Most of us spend our days writing emails and posting on social media, so we tend to think we can write compelling copy. Then you read Melissa’s prose and become humbled. She just gets what works about good copy.”
