Rachel Schwartz Fagan

Rachel Schwartz Fagan is passionate about storytelling and literature. She has an M.Phil in Children’s Literature from Trinity College Dublin, and works as a reading and writing tutor and ESL teacher for children and adults. She also moonlights as a theatre critic for Mooney on Theatre in Toronto.

Rachel is an avid zinester and was shortlisted for Broken Pencil’s Best Perzine Award in 2018 and 2020. Her picture book manuscript was longlisted for CANSCAIP’s Writing for Children Competition, and she has been published in the UC Review.

In her free time, she draws (badly), embroiders (a little better), argues with her dog (often loses), and reads (of course).
