I offer private writing coaching, both on individual pieces or projects–on a per-page basis–and in the form of six-month intensive mentorships modeled on the low-residency MFA structure I benefitted from at Warren Wilson College.

Past mentees have gone on to attend Warren Wilson, San Francisco State University, and other top low-residency and traditional MFA programs.

If you are interested in private coaching or mentorship, please write me at rachel.howard@gmail.com.

I was in a year-long MFA-style mentorship with Rachel working on my memoir in progress. Rachel’s careful reading of my work and detailed, meaningful feedback helped me to unlock the story I knew was there and challenged me to go deeper, to experiment and to ultimately discover more about my writing sensibilities. If I could only select one word to describe this experience I would choose: invaluable. I highly recommend working with Rachel.
