Melanie has written for various packet submission tournaments, including 2011 and 2012 MUT submissions, some questions from which survived and were used in the actual tournament. She also contributed to the failed ACF Nationals packet submission with Eliza Grames, Han Li, and Peter Estall that was never submitted due to an awful 14-line short story on the Battle of Bannockburn written by Peter Estall and a lack of funds to attend the tournament.

Her most impressive writing accomplishment is bound to be Never Say Never: Anything Goes - an awful trash tournament that she is co-writing with Eliza Grames to be played in Fall 2013.
