About Raych Jackson

Hi! WELCOME

My name is Rachel  Jackson but everyone calls me “Raych”. We may have met with this poem or this one or maybe this one!

IF WE'RE JUST MEETING
I am a writer, educator and performer. While teaching third and fourth grade in Chicago Public Schools, I competed on numerous national poetry teams and individual competitions. My poems have gained over 2 million views on YouTube. I am the 2017 NUPIC Champion and a 2017 Pink Door fellow. I recently voiced 'DJ Raych' in the Jackbox game, Mad Verse City. My latest play, “Emotions & Bots”, premiered at the Woerdz Festival in Lucerne, Switzerland. I wrote a room dedicated to my city for 29Rooms' first installment in Chicago, through Refinery29. I co-created and co-hosts Big Kid Slam, a monthly poetry show in Chicago. My work has been published by many— including Poetry Magazine, The Rumpus, The Shallow Ends, and Washington Square Review. My debut collection EVEN THE SAINTS AUDITION is forthcoming through Button Poetry. I currently live in Chicago.

THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN
I want to create even more. I am working on finishing solid works in different mediums. My debut collection of poem, EVEN THE SAINTS AUDITION is forthcoming through Button Poetry 9/24. Last year my goal was to complete a poetry manuscript, a collection of essays and a children's book. I've completed one! (You can get one shipped to your house in the $16 Tier)

You being a patron means you believe in me. I am sculpting these works WITH YOU. In this community you have access to all my exclusive unreleased works and thoughts. 

I want to build a community here first. I want to grow with you.

Thank you for even reading this,
Raych

Goals
45% complete
For this first goal I just want to get all the patrons I can in a month settled here. There will be more giveaways and such when we do! I just put in an order for something VERY special at the beginning of September. Check out the the welcome section to your right or head to @RaychJackson on different social medias for more info if you're still deciding! Thank you so much for reading.
