Micheline Maynard is creating Melange -- Tips From A Journalist

One of the first things you learn as a journalist is how to manage in any situation, and tackle any subject.

I've had lots of practice.

I've worked at places such as The New York Times and NPR. Now, I run my own writing and speaking business, and my work appears in places like the Times, the Washington Post, Forbes.com and ABC Australia.

I'm often invited to be on news programs like PBS NewsHour, BBC World News, and on NPR shows including Morning Edition.

Along the way, I've accumulated lots of knowledge about many topics -- a mix of understanding, you might say. That's why I'm writing Melange: Tips From A Journalist.

It's a weekly newsletter in which I'm sharing my expertise with you, and keeping you up to speed on my latest stories and appearances.

Think of me as your own personal Consumer Reports.

My goal is to make you feel inspired and help you gain some knowledge. Melange is a useful conversation that takes place each Sunday afternoon, and which can inform your week.

The Tips Just Keep On Coming


Each season, I'm offering you exclusive tips culled from my expertise.

This spring and summer, that means City Tips. They're my thoughts about maneuvering through, and enjoying, some of my favorite places around the world.

I've started off with New York City, where my newsletter readers have already learned how to get around town, and some great places to eat. They'll also learn how to enjoy the city in as stress-free a way as possible.

In City Tips, I'll be looking at New Orleans, Chicago, Washington, Paris, London and Tokyo, all places where I've lived or spent quality time.

By the time you read the whole set, you'll be a savvy traveler, and you can put my adventures to use.

Food, Cars, Personal Finance And More


After City Tips, I'm moving on to one of my favorite subjects -- assembling meals. You'll find out ways to save time, stretch your food dollars, be creative and use everything you buy at the market or order from a delivery service.

Later on, I'm going to look at car ownership and some other ideas for dealing with your day, your week, your month and your year.

Read a sample of Melange, and subscribe! There's a special rate for students. And if you'd like to underwrite a month of Melange, I'd be happy to have your help.

Thanks for checking out Melange. I hope -- in fact, I know -- you'll learn something.
