Rebecca Evans’ work reflects, among many things, fractured relationships. This fracturing influences every subsequent relationship—carrying scars and wounds throughout one’s life. Evans weaves disability, domestic violence, and a fight for survival throughout her narratives, hoping to start conversations, create awareness, compassion, and tolerance.

She hopes to inform what it means to navigate this world as a woman, a Jew, a single mom, a veteran, dwelling in broken body and spirit. She hopes to bust beyond borders and boundaries, and mostly hopes to help others feel less alone in their own experiences.

Evans is a memoirist, poet, and essayist. In addition to writing, she teaches Creative Nonfiction at Boise State University and mentors high school girls in the juvenile system. In her spare time, she co-hosts a radio program, Writer to Writer, offering a space for writers to offer tips on craft and life.

She has a passion for sharing difficult narratives infused vulnerability and woven with mysticism.

Evans earned two MFAs, one in creative nonfiction, the other in poetry, University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe. She lives in Idaho with her sons, her Newfoundlands, and her Calico.

Her poems and essays have appeared in Narratively, The Rumpus, Entropy Literary Magazine, War, Literature & the Arts, The Limberlost Review, and a handful of anthologies. She’s co-edited an anthology of poems, WHEN THERE ARE NINE, a tribute to the life and achievements of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Moon Tide Press).

Her full-length poetry collection, TANGLED BY BLOOD, will be available in 2023 (Moon Tide Press).

Evans has conducted over 100 seminars and presentations targeting self-improvement for women and girls.
