My Promise to You

Here's how and why I can make you this promise.

My name is Melanie Naumann and I've worked for years as an editor for writers, honing my understanding of the craft of storytelling through numerous courses, seminars, and dozens of writing guides.

My focus, however, is on taking song lyrics to a new, more meaningful, and gripping level through the power of storytelling.

I am the only Story Grid certified editor who works as a songwriting coach for songwriters.
In my podcast, I analyze songs according to storytelling principles and talk about how important storytelling is in songwriting.

Furthermore, I am the creator of the Uniqueness Factor Formula (a way to help established musicians write another bestselling album by leveraging what their fans love the most about their lyrics) as well as of the S.O.N.G. framework to evaluate the storytelling power of lyrics.

So if you're looking for someone to help you write lyrics that speak to and engage people, I look forward to hearing from you!

FAQ

If you don't see an answer to your question, you can send me an email from my contact form.

I am a Story Grid Certified Editor. That means I was personally trained by Shawn Coyne. He is an editor with over 30+ years of experience in editing manuscripts, and he has worked in the "Big 5" publishing houses. He created the Story Grid methodology that helps storytellers evaluate the structure of a story, identify the strengths and weaknesses, and give the writer the next steps to improve their story.

Being a Story Grid Certified Editor I am able to evaluate:
  • how stories work and what it takes to tell a story in a song that your listeners can resonate with

  • how to help you improve the stories told on your albums, no matter if you have a rough idea, songs drafted or released

  • how to give constructive and valuable feedback

 

If you want to learn more about The Story Grid methodology, visit the Story Grid website here.

I focus on the lyrics of the songs and not on the implementation of the music. So it's totally fine if you send me the lyrics in a Word-Document or in a PDF via email.

Absolutely! Let's have a call and talk about what is keeping you from getting started. Book a FREE strategy call with me and we'll talk about your current work in progress, about previous releases and how I can help! 

Yes, I can! I offer every songwriter a FREE analysis of one of their songs. This will provide you with a better understanding of storytelling in songwriting so that you'll know what you're already doing well and where you can focus on improving.

You can also work with me on an album together. We can brainstorm central ideas and concepts, talk about the stories for each song and write the lyrics that will engage your listeners in what you want to express in your songs.

Yes, absolutely. You don't have to have the music ready in order to apply for the analysis of your songs. I focus only on the lyrics and not on the melody or the musical implementation. So send me the lyrics of the songs in a Word-Document or in a PDF.

When we're working together, I focus on consulting, coaching, and writing lyrics together because I believe that everyone has a story to tell. And I want to support you to be able to tell what you need to express in your songs. So I'd love to work WITH you to tell truly powerful stories in your songs.

Yes, I do. Na klar! I'm a German native speaker and I'd love to work with you! Check out my German website here: storiesinsongs.de.
