The Author

Rachel Fox

Born and brought up in the North of England, Rachel has lived in North East Scotland since 2002. She has worked in journalism, education, mental health and learning support, foster care, market research, shops, and as a radio/nightclub DJ, but not necessarily in that order.

She started concentrating on poetry in the late 1990s, first published poems as postcards, then in a book 'More about the song' (2008) and, most recently, in a pamphlet called 'Turn' (2017). All details on the 'Books' and 'Postcards' pages.

Rachel read poems regularly at the folk club in Montrose from about 2007-2018. She has had poems published in various places including 'The Poetry Bus', 'The Scotsman', 'Gutter', 'The Herald', 'Pushing out the Boat' and a HappenStance Press anthology. Rachel has also organised poetry and music events in Montrose and Edinburgh but nothing very recent. She is not really called Rachel.
