Rachel Linn writes and illustrates across multiple genres and mediums. Her published writing includes fiction (realist and surreal), nonfiction, and poetry and her visual art merges drawing, printmaking, and needlework techniques. Her larger projects often include both text and illustrations and take the form of digital publications as well as handmade books (including some to be assembled by the reader).
She holds an MFA in creative writing from the University of Washington, where she received the Eugene Van Buren Prize for her thesis project. In 2016, she served as a book exposition coordinator for the Authors, Publishers and Readers of Independent Literature Festival in Seattle. She recently received an Artist Support Grant from the Region Arts Commission of St. Louis and is on the planning board of the St. Louis Small Press Expo.
