Poetry

Rachel’s poems have appeared in magazines and journals including The Poetry Review, The Rialto, Magma, The Interpreter’s House, The Tangerine, Poems in Which and Butcher’s Dog. Her poems published in The Scores and Poetry News are available to read online.

 

She has two pamphlets with the Emma Press, The Flower and the Plough (2013) and Rivers Wanted (2014). The Flower and the Plough is a small, illustrated pamphlet of love poems, inspired in part by the Roman poet Catullus. You can read a sample poem on the Emma Press blog and listen to another in a video created by Emma of the Emma Press.

Rivers Wanted is her first full-length pamphlet, with an introduction by the wonderful Kathryn Maris. It offers up a world where hope and anxiety wrestle and nature is scratching at the door.

Rachel’s third pamphlet, Disappointing Alice, will be published by HappenStance in June 2019.
