Rachel Z. Arndt

I’m a writer and researcher living in Chicago.

I write essays and poetry about culture, language, and fitness (and myself). My research is focused on advertising and the efficacy and efficiency of communication.

My debut essay collection, Beyond Measure, came out from Sarabande in 2018. I received MFAs from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and the University of Iowa’s Nonfiction Writing Program and a BA in creative writing and Spanish from Brown University.
