Rachael Kates

Rachael Kates is a freelance writer available for the commission and execution of articles, interviews, reviews, essays, fiction and any other forms of literary composition you may or may not have yet imagined. At the moment she reviews TV and movies, writes articles and conducts interviews with interesting people about ‘stuff Lori, things’. She supplements her income and keeps her edge by braving the wilds of American high school classrooms as a substitute teacher. She graduated from the Florida State University with a BA writing and a minor composed of other classes that didn’t start before noon; including The Slavic Vampire, The History of the Deep South in Film, and Sexuality in Antiquity - all of which have already been more useful in her real life than Algebra. You can contact her on Tumblr, or email.
