Melissa Tydell

Program: M. A. in Writing and Publishing

Accomplishments, Awards, Publications, and Scholarships: Partial tuition scholarships every quarter applied; graduating with distinction

Favorite Courses at DePaul: Magazine Editing: Packaging the Story because that’s my job now; 19th Century Literature: Jane Austen because I finally got a chance to read all of her novels; Poetry Writing because it was a new genre for me

Post-graduation Plans: I’ve started my own freelance writing business ( so I’ll be writing everything from marketing copy to magazine articles.  I also plan to continue reading and writing fiction… and someday, publish a novel.
