Indy WordLab Meetup

Michelle Freed is a humorist, journalist, public speaker, and occasional cheap therapist.

In fact, through her humor columns, human interest stories, and speaking engagements, she has continuously touched readers and audience members with her insights, allowing them to realize, “Wow, I’m not nearly as screwed up as she is.”

Having graduated from The University of Oklahoma with a degree in journalism, she has spent her professional career as a writer, corporate communications specialist, editor, humor columnist, and briefly…a high school counselor.

She is an Indianapolis Star correspondent, freelance writer, and corporate blogger. Her contributions have appeared in a long list of additional publications and websites, including: Aiming Low (; Mommyzine; Indianapolis radio station WZPL’s online Family Magazine; The Oklahoma Gazette; and atGeist and atCarmel, suburban Indianapolis magazines. She is currently writing her first book.

Most recently, Michelle wrote, produced, and performed her first one-woman show, Come Dance with Me (but first can I borrow your pants?), as part of the 2013 IndyFringe Festival in Indianapolis. Her debut production garnered 3.5 stars from NUVO, stating, “… Freed sparkles like a disco ball as she delivers this well-crafted monologue.” For the record, she wore her own pants.
