Revision Love:
Self-Editing for Creative Writers

If you're getting bleary-eyed revising your writing come get help polishing it until it shines. This course will bring your revision skills to the next level, giving you new tools for your writing practice that will help your writing sparkle.


Hi, Writer, I'm Rachel Thompson.

I'm a literary magazine editor (at Room), a published poet, and an essayist who is here to help you polish your writing and discover the best places to share it.

I’ve worked with writers at any stage who want to share their work and who need guidance and direction to push their boundaries and get out there.

I help you break through the resistance to move forward, demystify the process of getting your work out there, and stop being overwhelmed and stuck so you will start sharing your work.
