“Melanie is a first-class financial journalist who can always be relied upon for accurate reports and intelligent analysis.

It was a pleasure to work with Melanie for nearly five years and I am delighted to see that she continues to lead the field in news and views you can use.”

“Melanie is a must-have for any editor. Her ideas are always well researched and current and her copy is on time, clean as a whistle and to length. What’s more, she is a pleasure to deal with and always happy to help with last minute commissions.”
Holly Thomas, former Deputy Personal Finance Editor, The Sunday Times

“Melanie wrote the Money pages for The Sunday Mirror for more than twelve years and always delivered clear, concise and well-written copy on time. She pitched ideas which were perfect for our readership and knows her subject inside out.”
Claire O’Boyle, Deputy Features Editor, The Sunday Mirror

“Melanie Wright is a talented and experienced journalist. She is very knowledgeable and great at breaking down complicated stories to make them accessible to mass audiences and help them understand the key issues.

She will never disappoint.”
Reshma Rumsey, Features Editor, ITV

“Mel has been writing for me for MoneySuperMarket for three years, and has also supported me with editing when I’ve needed her too. She’s reliable, efficient, knows the subject area fully and totally understands consumers and what they’re concerned about when it comes to their finances. It’s great when you know a freelancer who will deliver good quality copy that is just ready to go and that’s what you get from Mel.”
Clare Francis, Editor-in-Chief,

“We chose Melanie to write the Gocompare mortgage guide to support the Gocompare mortgage service because of her huge knowledge of the mortgage market and her reputation as an award-winning journalist. We weren’t disappointed – she delivered on brief and to the deadline set. I would have no hesitation in using Melanie again or recommending her to other organisations requiring financial services editorial or copy for brochures and guides.”
