This Community is For Emerging Writers Who…

  • want to polish and publish their writing—brand-new writers are welcome, but this community is a best fit if you are committed to honing your voice and sharing your work.
  • are willing to do the work to make their writing luminous—we actively set aside imposter syndrome and artist-egoism in our authentic conversations.
  • are open-minded, curious, and compassionate—we celebrate and cherish that our community of writers comes from diverse backgrounds and life paths.
  • desire to connect with the writing community and are willing to openly share experiences and resources.
  • are warm, approachable and excited to show up for their community

Hello, I’m Rachel Thompson

Author and Literary Magazine Editor

I am here to help you write, publish, and shine!

I come alive when I connect with writers and help them develop their craft quickly, bringing their writing to amazing (highly-publishable) new levels.

If you’re ready to learn and grow, to trust yourself and an open and honest writer who has got your back (that’s me!), I’d love to have you join the Writerly Love membership community.
