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 writing, editing, and research services, including blog writing, website content, deep dive research, copy editing, and developmental editing for novels. I’ve done everything from driving a tractor on a farm to teaching college composition at Northern Virginia Community College and serving as the communications specialist for local theater arts company CARE Actor.

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, NEVER SHRIEK WHEN YOU STEP INTO THE OCEAN. An excerpt of NEVER SHRIEK was shortlisted for the RopeWalk Press Editor’s Fiction Chapbook Prize.

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 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.
