Beth Kanter, Freelance Writer

About Me

I am a freelance feature writer based in Washington, DC, who most often covers parenting, travel and women’s issues. My work has appeared in dozens of publications including Parents, American Baby, Working Mother, Shape, the Chicago Tribune, Fodor’s Washington D.C. 2008,, and Pages, where I penned the “Our Favorite Places” column which took readers to fun, funky and unusual literary travel sites. Additionally, I earned an MSJ from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and have an undergraduate degree in English.

I share my home and my life (but never my laptop) with my husband and our two young children who, until they are old enough to tell me otherwise, often serve as fodder for my writing.
