Meet Marielle 

Hi! My name is Marielle Songy, and I'm a writer.


Born and raised in New Orleans, I've always been passionate about the written word. As a freelance journalist, I enjoy writing about the food, people, and culture of the city where I was raised. 

I've written personal interest pieces for local and national web and print publications. I've also worked with various businesses to produce valuable content for their brand.

I enjoy research and learning. When I have a conversation with someone about something they're passionate about, I learn something new. Nothing compares to meeting a chef pumped about a signature dish, a bartender who spun their passion for chemistry into a career, or someone who wants to make a difference in the world by helping others. I love sharing those stories with readers; those are the human stories that unite us.

In addition to working as a journalist, I write poetry and creative stories. 

If you have a story that you'd like me to cover, or if you would like to hire me for other writing work, please email me at

Let's tell your story.
