praise for rachael's work
"Rachael takes fears, and flaws, and even mistakes, plays with them bravely, with freedom and care, and creates unexpected, magical poems."
Linda Zisquit, judge of the 2023 Andrea Moriah Poetry Prize
"What drew me to Rachael's work was the quirky freshness of her female voice. the startling and sharp-edged imagery, and above all, the masterful music of her poems as she explores girlhood, displacement, and a woman's experience."
