Welcome to my writing spot.  My name is Rachel, and I'm a writer, artist, and teacher in NYC.  Here you'll find some of my poetry and blog posts on topics like love, death, divorce, faith, and navigating the tricky paths of life. 

 

Coming soon I will be adding a column offering instruction and tips for creative writing.  I went to NYU's MFA in creative writing program, graduating in 2006, and I was a NYC public school teacher for seven years, teaching creative writing, among other things.

 

I believe in the power of the pen to change the world, by inspiration, sharing stories, and finding the humanity in all.
