I teach writing, primarily at the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto and Stanford Continuing Studies, and primarily memoir writing and personal essay. I also teach and coach one-on-one, and offer intensive editorial consultation, when I feel I’m a good fit for the particular writer and his or her sensibilities and project. If you are interested in one-on-one work, you can contact me at rachel dot howard at gmail dot com.
On this site, you can find information on my teaching philosophy and current classes. And–since I think the most revealing thing about a writing teacher is the books she loves–a list of my favorite books.
