Lindsay DeFrates is a freelance writer who has lived and played in the Roaring Fork Valley for over a decade. She is a regular contributor at NRS Duct Tape Diaries, TheDyrt.com, and Outdoor Project. Recent in-print bylines include Elevation Outdoors Magazine, Spoke and Blossom Magazine, as well as a title feature piece in the Fall, 2019 National Ski Patrol Magazine.
She also writes content for blogs and websites in a variety of genres to generate an engaged readership and enhance SEO. She especially enjoys working with small businesses, entrepreneurs and artists who need written content for their websites, blogs or publications in the Roaring Fork Valley from Rifle to Glenwood Springs to Aspen.
Lindsay has a monthly opinion column in the Glenwood Springs Post Independent which she has been writing since 2015 as a way of being engaged with her community and making her voice heard about issues she finds important. On her off days, she writes short stories, satire, and of course, has a novel in draft.
Currently wrangling kids and words in Glenwood Springs, CO, she loves her adventure-filled, sleep-deprived existence.
