Nice Words

“Meryl is a smart and heartfelt writer, and a pleasure to work with. It’s always great to see her name in my inbox.”

Margaret Eby, culture editor at Extra Crispy, author of South Toward Home

“Meryl is everything an editor wants in a writer: always available with fresh ideas, and always on time with a well-written draft! I look forward to working with her, and I also look forward to where she goes next.”

Nicole Dieker, writer at The Billfold, The Write Life, and more

“Working with Meryl as an author and performer is a great experience. Through quality writing, she brings a modern and sweet perspective to a variety of experiences with a voice that’s relatable, gently humorous, and real. She responds well to editorial feedback, remaining open to revisions while staying true to the spirit of her stories.”

Rosamund Lannin, co-showrunner of Miss Spoken, senior editor of Story Club Magazine

“As an early and loyal subscriber to The Sleeper Hit newsletter, I look forward to seeing what Meryl has penned in each email, where her adventures are leading her, and what pop culture she recommends as a citizen of the hipster epicenter of the West. Her writing transforms her real-life experiences, emotions, observations and wit into beautiful, clear stories that she generously shares with the world.”

Suzanne Wilder, editor and blogger

“Meryl Williams is a dynamo of the written word. Whether it’s covering a zoning commission meeting for a suburban weekly, sharing her experiences with hearing loss, or showing us the inner workings of a roller-derby squad, she does it with aplomb, a sharp pen and a keen sense of adventure.

Dennis Laycock, editor and writer

“Meryl really demystified a lot of the social media machine for me. She helped me choose where to focus and figure out what kinds of content work best on what platforms. This landscape can seem very intimidating at first glance — it helps to know someone with a map!”

Zach Lehner, graphic novel illustrator of Junior Braves of the Apocalypse
