About Melanie Hamlett

Hey there! If you're reading this, I'm guessing you like my work (Harper's Bazaar, The Guardian, WaPo, Outside Mag, Playboy, HuffPost, Glamour, The Daily Beast, etc). Or my podcasts on Risk!, etc.

I'm here to offer you stuff no one gets to read if you're a fan of my work. Editors often have to cut a lot out. And there are stories I love telling that just aren't appropriate for pubs. So you get to hear that stuff here. The stuff that I didn't pitch yet or can't cuz it's too crazy.  

I'm also offering up pitching/writing/storytelling advice. I've won The Moth several times, I've got nine stories on the Risk! podcast and I know my shit. But for those of you wanting to get the courage to get on stage with a story or pitch to a magazine or newspaper, I'm here for you. I can save you a shit ton of money and time. I was self-taught on pitching and I wish someone had saved me hundreds of hours of research. It's exhausting trying to figure this crap out. Let me help. I sold my first pitch to Harper's Bazaar and it went viral. For example.


Also, for other brave souls, I'm offering tinder/dating app advice. I've had such great experiences on tinder (like hundreds y'all) due to my ruthless vetting system. So if you keep finding yourself going out with assholes (by mistake!) or if you kinda look like an asshole cuz of your terrible profile, I'd love to help you with that. OR if you are chasing trash dick all the time or self-sabotaging good relationships, I can tell you what I did to stop doing that crap myself. It's hard! I needed guidance.

OR if you are dying to move abroad, go on that adventure, or get the hell out of your comfort zone, I can help you with that. Just try once and if you like it, we can keep going. Don't feel like you are stuck. You're never stuck. Let me help you figure out how to push your comfortzone and stop feeling so damn trapped.
