Take a break, get inspired, and learn a bit more about Rachel Newcombe. Here is our twist on an interview.


  • A quote that inspires you:


  • Your writing process described as a song: David Byrne – This Must Be The Place


  • You’re a writer so tell us with your words why you write. But please don’t bore us:

I write to surrender to myself.
I write to find meaning.
I write so I can stop hiding.
I write because I am inspired by what I read.


  • What is a recent story or poem you’ve had published elsewhere that we should read?

There Are Oceans Between Us” published in 7×7
