It’s been a busy start to the new year for us at Walnut Creative, and we are happy to announce that we have a new member of the team to join in on all of the madness – meet Melissa Hodgson, our new marketing assistant.

Melissa graduated from the University of Sunderland in 2016 with a PR degree, and worked with both in-house and agency PR and marketing specialists while at university.

With a passion for writing, Melissa can easily adapt the right tone and voice to any written content, and knows her stuff when it comes to press releases, blogging and social media. 

Since joining us in the office, she has been assisting Laura, our content marketing coordinator, with writing blog posts, producing social media work, and creating website content for our clients.

Glen Crossland, Walnut Creative’s Director, said: “It’s great to have Melissa join the team and from what she has done for us so far, it’s clear that she will make a positive difference to our work.

“With her fresh knowledge of PR and marketing, we are very much looking forward to seeing what else Melissa can do as she picks up new skills and broadens her knowledge.”

You can contact Melissa via her email at

If you have any questions or queries about PR, marketing or any of our services, please contact us and we’ll be happy to discuss this with you.
