Rachel Gary is a Hartford native, poet, artist, activist, youth mindfulness and yoga instructor, and works in non-profit communications in order to pass as an adult. She majored in Creative Writing at the Greater Hartford Academy of the Arts many (many) years ago, and still reads and writes poetry as a way to shirk her responsibilities as often as possible. She is currently probably out hiking in the woods somewhere, procrastinating working on an eternally forthcoming chapbook of poems with little basis in reality.
