INTRODUCTION

Katrina Ávila Munichiello is a freelance writer specializing in tea and food (with a particular interest in food allergies), New England and parenting issues. She is currently the Senior Editor at Tea Magazine and a Writer/Editor at Tea Biz, as well as running her own Tea Pages blog for the past six years.

My love of writing has evolved from my interest in learning.  As a freelance writer I can spend one week researching the benefits of aluminum cans versus plastic bottles for tea packaging.  The next I might be composing an article about a family-friendly day trip in Massachusetts.  On the third you might find me writing an essay about living with a child with food allergies.


I am exhilarated as I delve deeply into a topic for a trade or consumer magazine.  I am inspired by my corporate clients as they allow me to share their missions and outstanding products.  I strive to find the voice of my customers, whoever they might be, and allow their mission to be my priority.  It is for this reason that I will only work with clients who offer products and services I truly believe in.

I have used my writing skills in numerous ways in my professional career. Past experiences include:
*  Composing articles on assignment for trade and consumer magazines,
*  Writing copy for product packaging and corporate websites,
*  Developing fundraising and marketing materials for the non-profit sector,
*  Grant writing and reporting
and
*  Helping companies find their voice by developing corporate blogs





I am currently considering new projects and I hope I can have the opportunity to help you meet your writing needs.

BOOK RELEASED IN OCTOBER 2011

"A Tea Reader: Living Life One Cup at a Time" is a collection of non-fiction essays inspired by tea. I spent a year gathering stories from tea shop owners, writers, tea experts and scholars, and ordinary tea drinkers about conversations, trips, traditions and significant moments experienced over a cup of tea. These essays are joined by those of well-known people from the past -- Louisa May Alcott, Rudyard Kipling, Thomas Lipton -- whose experiences mirror our own.

"A Tea Reader" was released by Tuttle Publishing in the Fall of 2011. It is available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indie Bound, and other teashops and bookshops.
