Trevor Fraser

Editorial News Assistant, Orlando Sentinel

Writing is how I have always sought to serve my community.

I moved to Orlando in 2002 to attend the University of Central Florida and graduated in 2005 with my degree in Creative Writing. Throughout college, I wrote for several Orlando publications, including Orlando Weekly and aXis Magazine, on topics ranging from covering court cases to national politics to music reviews. I was also active in the local poetry community and was part of the four-person 2003 Orlando National Poetry Slam team.

Before graduation, I was hired as an Editorial Assistant for the Orlando Sentinel. After two years, I left to pursue an education in sustainable farming and planning practices. In 2014, I graduated from Rollins College with a Master's in Planning in Civic Urbanism.

My goal is to use my education, experience, and skills to enlighten and entertain Central Florida. I have made a life of connecting to people through writing. In addition to my significant professional experience, I believe the great quality my writing has to offer is my passion.
