Erin Rose Belair
I am a writer. To be more specific, a copywriter specializing in advertising, a travel content creator, an essayist, short story writer, and soon to be novelist. While this may seem like vast territory to cover, all of my work comes from the same place: a deep well of curiosity and creativity, with a strength in language and story telling, and an aim to channel a unique voice for every project I take on. I would love work with you, chat with you, create with you.
I love copywriting. It's this magical job that allows me to develop my voice, specific to each brand and project, while sharpening my language skills. In writing copy I want to be precise, sometimes poignant, other times heartfelt, and on my good days even funny. I have had the opportunity to use copywriting to tell stories, shape brands, do voice overs, create campaigns, and so much more.
I have had the pleasure of working with the following brands: Richer Poorer, RAEN Optics, Penny's Coffee, O'Neil, Billabong Women's, Stay GLDN, UGG, Athleta, BB Dakota, Pointe Studio, and more.

Travel writing is a dream. I started writing at Locale Magazine after finishing college, and have since gone to publish pieces in Travel & Leisure, LiveFAST Magazine, and UpRoxx Life. I use my adventures as fuel to create travel essays, hotel tours, and specialized guides to the cities and countries I visit. Every single piece is so unique, as the place tends to dictate what I am going to write about.
Since finishing graduate school I have been consistently on the run visiting and writing about places like Cuba and Indonesia, road tripping from Sydney to Byron Bay and along California's Eastern Sierras, camping on the salt flats and seeking our hot springs, and living the most lavish kind of life in Cartagena, Colombia. The world continues to teach me something new every day.

Fiction || Essays
Everything I write comes from what I know about writing fiction and essays. This is the bones of my writing life. I studied with Ron Carlson at UC Irvine and then at Boise State with Brady Udall, Mitch Weiland, Nicole Cullen, and Dennis Johnson for my MFA. I strive to make them all proud of me.
My collection of short stories, Vinegar, was my thesis. Since graduating in 2016 I have placed three of the seven stories: at Narrative, Juked, and Glimmer Train, which won me their Emerging Writer's Award. I am proud of this collection. I am currently writing my first novel, The Shanty.
I am represented by Erin Harris at Folio Literary Agency in New York.
