NorahVawterHeadshot.jpg

I have an M.F.A. in creative writing from George Mason University and a B.A. in English from the College of William and Mary. I offer a diverse range of freelance services, including developmental editing for novels, copy editing, copywriting, fact checking, and deep dive research. I’ve recently joined online magazine DCTrending.com as an editor.

I’ve published articles, op-eds, and essays on parenting, politics, and lifestyle topics in The Washington Post, OtherWords, Posh Seven, Scary Mommy, JustBE Parenting, among others. My short fiction and poetry have appeared in The Nassau Review, Agave Magazine, Extract(s), and Stymie, among others. I won a 2018 essay contest for Memoir Magazine. I am currently querying my first novel, an excerpt of which was shortlisted for the RopeWalk Press Editor’s Fiction Chapbook Prize. My past work experience includes teaching composition and literature at Northern Virginia Community College, interning for PEN/Faulkner, helping to start the short-lived alternative paper The Washington Spark, and serving as the communications specialist for local theater arts company CARE Actor. I’m the former fiction editor of So to Speak and The William and Mary Review.

Before taking a high school writing workshop, I wanted to be a mathematician. I still think math is beautiful, a way to tame the chaos, but now I prefer to work with words instead of numbers. I’m obsessed with the ocean, space travel, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Hamilton, Harry Potter, and many different coming of age stories. I live with my husband and son in the D.C. area, where I’m working on my second novel.
