Stacey Freed holds an MFA from George Mason University and is an award-winning writer for national trade and consumer print and online publications including USA Today and Better Homes & Gardens publications and AARP’s Livable Communities. She was the managing editor for B’nai B’rith’s magazine, and for ten years she was a senior editor for Hanley Wood’s Remodeling magazine. She has had her own freelance writing business since 2013.
Her essay, “Tourist No More,” published in She Can Find Her Way: Women Travelers at Their Best (Upper Hand Press, 2017), was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. Over the years, she has taught writing at George Mason, George Washington, Marymount and Georgetown universities, and The Writer’s Center in the Washington, D.C. area and locally at Writers and Books and MCC.
She is currently looking for representation for her novel, “Life in Progress.” When not writing, she loves to read, bake challah and cookies or hike with her husband Jeff and their black lab Gerty. She has two sons who have nearly left the nest and who still fill her with awe at their existence – and a healthy dose of agita.
