Journalism Portfolio

Melanie Saxton magazine writer

I had the honor of interviewing Roma Downey at the premiere of Son of God.

Magazine Writing

As a current magazine writer and contributing editor (and a former editor-in-chief), I needed a landing page to organize my features—more for the memories than anything else, but also to share books written by those I’ve interviewed.

I’ve been writing and reporting for so long that I can’t possibly list them all, but have included a hundred or so interviews loosely categorized below. Note that if they fit into several categories, I may list articles more than once.

As a magazine writer, editor, journalist, and copywriter, I thrive on difficult assignments and turn-on-a-dime deadlines. Over the years I’ve accumulated a vast amount of experience in all literary realms, so don’t hesitate to reach out if you need help with formatting and self-publishing.
