What luminous writers say about my online creative writing courses…

Rachel deeply cares about helping emerging and established writers. She believes in building and cultivating writing communities—spaces for writers to meet, share work, get feedback, and grow.

Marlena Chertock

Lit Mag Love Alumna, Author of Crumb Sized

Rachel’s kind and wise instruction, her asynchronous learning format, and the beautiful group of writers she attracts will keep you going through the darkest nights of the soul.

Lacey Yong

Writerly Love Member

Being part of Lit Mag Love and working with Rachel Thompson transformed my writing by opening avenues to publications, developing community, and furthering my commitment to craft.

Rachel is a fantastic mentor and I highly recommend this course.
