My name is Rebecca Evans. I am a writer, communicator, social media strategist, and arts advocate passionate about crafting concise and compelling narratives, and implementing creative projects from start to finish, with strict attention to detail.
Born in Williamsburg, Virginia, I grew up performing in musicals, plays, and recitals, and writing short stories, poems, and songs beneath a lilac tree in the backyard of a house never short on books. When I think of my childhood, I think of books.
I studied classical voice and opera at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. I am an avid believer in the power of the arts to awaken activists and inspire change. Oklahoma! started a musical theatre revolution and The Rite of Spring started a riot.
I reside in Norfolk, Virginia, and work in marketing at Virginia Arts Festival. In my spare time, I run a book club, take creative nonfiction writing classes, and serve on the Projects Committee of the Downtown 100. I love watching old movies and musicals, singing while baking, playing the banjo and piano, and devouring books and berries of any kind.
