Meet the Poet
Rachel Schmieder-Gropen is a sophomore at Mount Holyoke College, double majoring in French and English with a concentration in Creative Writing. She has a cartoon-style small dog and a drawer full of disposable fountain pens. Schmieder-Gropen (regrettably) self-published a collection of poetry and short stories as a freshman in high school and hopes to publish a less embarrassing collection in 2016. She has had poetry published in several reviews, including Yellow Chair Review, Crab Fat Magazine, and Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine. Read.
