Welcome to She Writes 901.

I’m Melinda Lejman: native Memphian, super mom, and freelance writer.


I am a freelance writer for hire specializing in human interest, feature articles, and technical writing projects.

I graduated from the University of Memphis with a BA in Professional Writing and an MA in Teaching English as a Second Language (ESL). I have experience in adult education, marketing and development, technical writing, and project coordination.

I am a contributor for local publications like Focus Magazine, Jewish Scene Magazine, The Memphis Daily News, and The Daily Memphian.

My latest project is a podcast I co-host, the Absolutely (Im)Perfect Podcast. My co-host and I explore glorious imperfection in our everyday lives, and share our experience using other people’s advice, tools, and wisdom as we continue on our own journeys of absolute imperfection. Check us out!

I am also the voice of Rebellious Reckoning,  a blog dedicated to recovery and self-improvement. Please contact me if you would like to share your story about overcoming addiction.

Thank you for your interest – I look forward to working with you!
