Rachel has a mild Alabama twang and a penchant for going everywhere that is not The South. That is to say: she wants to sleep on your couch, but only after a proper coffee-date and a nerd-out session on 90s bands. She’ll probably get a tattoo with you, too.
When she’s hunkered down in her home state and not distracted by her beautiful nephew and four-legged loves, Rachel serves as the poetry editor at cahoodaloodaling, the associate editor at Hobo Camp Review, and as one of a slew of queer-ish editors at Screen Door Review. She also edited the international anthology America Is Not the World. Her own work has appeared at Rogue Agent, Rust + Moth, Up the Staircase Quarterly, and Words Dance, among other places. She was nominated for Best New Poets–2015, and received Honorable Mentions for Best of the Net–2015.
Rachel is working on her first book, which happens to be without a title, precise theme, and general direction, but none of that is holding her back. You can follow her on her poorly kept blog at: chasingthegrey.com or on Twitter as @rachelnix_poet, where she mostly just talks poorly about the “president”.
