Tracy Gold, writer, editor, and teacherI love empowering people by helping them become better writers. I do that in my work as an editor and teacher. These days, I mostly work as a freelance editor who helps fiction writers and memoirists. I teach composition at the University of Baltimore, and I write short stories and novels. I earned my Masters of Fine Arts in Fiction at the University of Baltimore, and I also learned a lot about publishing from interning for literary agent Carrie Pestritto. Before I went back to school, I worked as a marketing consultant.

When I’m not working, I’m hanging out with my family (including my new daughter Ava), walking my rescue dog, riding my ex-racehorse, or devouring a novel.

If you’re a Terp or a Tar Heel, you may want to skip this part, because I’m a proud alum of Duke University.

P.S., if you’re wondering why the middle initial is everywhere, it’s because I have no relationship with Tracy Gold, the actress in Growing Pains. I was actually named after a dog, which is cool by me.
