Lauren Wolf Strawbridge

Be honest. Be inspirational. Be brave.

 

Lauren Wolf Strawbridge is a freelance writer, editor, and adventurer living in Rockville, MD. In 2012, she graduated summa cum laude from Salisbury University with a BA in English and a minor in Outdoor Educational Leadership. She then spent two years directing a childcare center and six months teaching English to business professionals in Chile. This past August, Lauren received her MFA in Writing from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). Her thesis includes the topics of mental health, memoir, and humor.

Lauren's philosophy – to write boldly – shows in her immersion journalism and personal essays. She embraces direct honesty and light comedy. In March 2016, Lauren spoke at the Association of Writers and Writing Programs Conference in Los Angeles about using humor to write through pain. In her memoirs, Lauren delves into her past to uncover the funny, even in troubling memories. She believes that hardy laughing, authenticity, and smiling at follies foster youthfulness. Her core values encompass education, communication, and joviality.

In her studies, Lauren has become proficient in creative nonfiction, grammatical and structural editing, intercultural communication, and teaching others how to excel in English. She has professional experience working independently and as a team. While in grad school, she wrote and edited for SCAD's Collaborative Learning Center, which liaises with large corporations such as Google, Disney, and NASA. She has also interned with two literary magazines: Potomac Review and SCAD’s graduate journal Document, both of which granted her the opportunity to read diverse creative works from published and emerging authors.

In her free time, Lauren enjoys exploring the outdoors. Her experiences – both professionally and independently – have taught her resourceful thinking, emergency preparedness techniques, wilderness first aid, and team building facilitation.

Today, you can find Lauren walking her Chilean dog through Maryland's outdoors or fervently writing at any Starbucks.
