200 Words With Natalia Sylvester


Currently a full-time freelance writer in Austin, Texas, Natalia Sylvester is anticipating the release of her debut novel. With a background in magazine editing, Sylvester became a freelance writer in order to have time to work on fiction writing.
Before gaining the desire to write novels, Sylvester’s first love was poetry. She even considered it as a major while in college; but instead opted to study creative writing.

Her aspiration to write novels came about after reading Dreaming in Cuban by Cristina Garcia. In reading this book, Sylvester found herself not wanting to leave the book’s characters. It was in that moment that Sylvester realized she wanted to give readers that same experience.
