Rachel Jagt is, it is safe to say, a music fanatic. So when the time came to shake off the dull existence of post-university career choices, reviewing CDs seemed to be a light shining from above -- and it was telling her to write. And here she is today.
Her favourite things include anything Canadian (music, books, beer commercials...), the little jumps her heart takes the first time she listens to a really beautiful song, watching the sun set on the Atlantic on the way to Newfoundland....
She tends to search out things she can really experience, from live music to a gentle breeze on a deceptively warm fall day. She expects a new interest in photography to become one of her great loves.
She's a sucker for a really sad song, one that shows the writer isn't afraid to throw his or her soul open to whomever will listen. To Rachel, that's the point of music and poetry -- to pull listeners into a world they need but can't get on their own. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
