My name is Rachel Anne Warren, and I am a writer, professional singer, and traditional wig maker.
Writing: I have published nearly 40 features, profiles, cover stories, and personal essays in The New York Times, Catapult, VICE, Bustle, Greatist, Baltimore City Paper, STYLE Weekly, and The Billfold. One cover story won first place for Virginia Press Association. I have been featured on Stoop Storytelling, Fiction Is First, and RISK! podcasts with original stories.
When I was 19 years old, I ran away to join a circus. I wrote about that year, and now am seeking representation for The Circus, my complete 87,000-word debut, coming-of-age memoir that rejoices in the anti-fairy tale. WIP include long form literary personal essays, a semi-sitcom, a novel, and another memoir.
Outside of writing: I like taking pretty pictures, making wigs the old fashioned way, and singing. For most of my living, I sing with a wedding band and as part of an indie lounge act, and I teach singing and public speaking. Creative work is thrilling, tedious, and rewarding.
