What do you write?

Short non-fiction pieces (mostly about travel experiences), poems, and occassionally short stories

What's your favorite subject to write about?

I like to write about different places/cultures I've had experiences in (I guess you could call it 'travel writing'). And I enjoy writing poems that capture a certain place or person.

Who is your favorite author?

Hmm...I actually do not have one, but I really love Sandra Cisneros & writers with a similar style.

If you could meet any dead writer, who would it be?

Shakespeare, why not. I really just don't have an answer to that one.

What do you hope to achieve in your work?

I like to make people feel compassion for people with very different lives than their own. I like to incorporate social issues into my writing, but in a way that's very human and relatable.


Hello! My name is Rachel, and I just moved to Burlington for VISTA. I really enjoy writing, but haven't been active in a writer's community for awhile. I'm looking foward to meeting some other writers, who can help me push to the next level!
