Rachel King’s short fiction has appeared in
One Story, Green Mountains Review, Pigeon Pages, Lunch Ticket, and elsewhere,
and has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net.
Her poetry chapbook Between Work and Light is available from Dancing Girl Press.
She is currently working on a short novel about an Uber driver/Portlander
witnessing her sister relapse into anorexia, and a collection of linked stories about factory workers
trying to survive in a wealthy area of the United States.
Over the past several years, she has been searching for a home for Tree Line,
a novella/short novel, which was one of twenty-four finalists in Los Galesburg’s 2019
open reading period, and People along the Sand, a novel, which was one of five finalists
in Forest Avenue Press’s 2018 open reading period. Tree Line details romance and revolt among
tenant workers during Prince Edward Island’s land reform movement in the 1830s;
People along the Sand follows characters working for and against the Beach Bill,
a 1967 legislation that made all Oregon beaches public land.
Rachel lives in her hometown of Portland, Oregon,
