A Note From Our Founder...

When I'm not writing and editing or teaching, you can find me... 

Reading "just one more chapter" with the little boy in the red striped pajamas.

Curling up in front of the fire with my favorite book and my favorite rescue pup.

Lounging through lazy weekends with my husband and the little girl in pink socks who is just discovering the joy of reading.

Connecting with all the family and friends who make life so rich and so worth living. Usually over a glass of wine.

Visiting the amazing museums and libraries in Minneapolis on hot summer days.

Walking around one of those 10,000 lakes in early spring or late fall.

Staying inside at the local theater when the temperature dip below zero. Well below zero. And stay there for a few months.

Traveling the world with my favorite people. Follow along with all our crazy adventures over on Instagram. Then, send me a message and say hello!

Who is Midwest Writing & Editing?

Our founder is a writer and editor. But she's also a teacher and a mentor. She has spent decades teaching young people and adults, overseeing interns and professional staff, and, most recently, helping newer writers establish their footing through encouragement, support, and professional advice.

Midwest Writing and Editing began as a one-woman operation when Rachel's oldest was a brand new baby. We have grown as that baby grew. Now, we are a team of writers and editors across the country, still inspired by Rachel's uncanny eye for editing and unique writing voice.
