Hi, I’m Rachel Thompson…

I am here to help writers like you share your most luminous words.

My official bio will tell you my collection of poetry, Galaxy, won a competition and was published by Anvil Press and that I am an editor with Room magazine.

My unofficial bio confesses that I like writing that is “too much” that is messy, wild-eyed, and that shares deep truths about our world.

I want to feel you, writer, out there, pulsing on the page. I know the world needs your deepest, most truthful words. (Yes, yours!)

So many times in my life, but especially when I was most broken, writing has offered me solace, compassion, and deep understanding of difference. Because of this, I believe the knowledge and insight we gain from writing and sharing our own stories can truly change the world.

Writing is where we get to finally and fully tell deep truths—what wonder and what a relief! As Anaïs Nin wrote, “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
