Rachel Thompson

Hi, I'm rachel Thompson

I am a literary magazine editor (with Room), a published author, and the host of the Lit Mag Love Podcast (For Creative Writers Who Want to Publish). 

I am here to help ​you publish​ your ​most luminous work.

Lit Mag Love was the impetus I needed to get serious and motivated about my submissions.

Rachel was a luminous guide offering equal parts gentle prompts and discerning truths.
