Drea Edwards

Author, Connector, Creator


After half a lifetime filled with many other things, Drea woke up one day and remembered the forgotten path in the woods.   


And now she’s a writer.


Drea Edwards writes fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry, and delivers writing workshops both in person and online. Her work features relatable and flawed humans, frequently juxtaposed with the magic of the natural world, and focused on themes of connectedness, loss, redemption, compassion, forgiveness, and authenticity. She has long-term yoga and Buddhist meditation practices, which sometimes inform her writing.  


Originally from Brockton, Massachusetts, the City of Champions, Drea spent over three decades in business leadership roles, including as founder of consulting and coaching firm, SwiftRiver Associates. She earned her undergraduate degree in English Literature from Boston University and her MA in Creative Writing from the Maslow Family Graduate Program at Wilkes University, where she is currently pursuing her MFA.


Drea and her husband divide time between winter travel and summers at their crooked off-grid cabin in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, where she sits on rocks and befriends old trees.
