Inside

Mel Simone Elliott

MA work

Luckily for Mel, her life has always been remarkably unpredictable. Her love-life is completely tragic and probably always will be. Ridiculous situations appear to follow her around, making her existence into one long, dark comedy. However, rather than sitting and feeling sorry for herself, Mel decided to make a career from it, deliberately putting herself into situations that will have an effect on her life and then writing about it. Her writing, whether it be fiction, non-fiction or film script is always embarrassingly autobiographical, jam-packed with everyday observations, irony and dry wit.
