To learn more about writing workshops, contact Rachel Benjamin at or call 585-507-9322.


Rachel began writing at a very young age, insistently making her cousins perform her plays at every possible family function. Since that time, her original work has been picked up by The Merry-Go-Round Playhouse’s Youth Theater, where she currently has two original plays in rotation, The Skit Guys, a nationally renowned writing team, EC, a magazine publication of Lifeway, and Casowasco Camp and Retreat Ministries, where her work has been commissioned for the past four years.

Rachel’s plays have been selected for staged readings by theatre groups such as the Fire Exit Theatre in Calgary, Canada and TN Women’s Work Festival in Nashville, TN. Her original play, Idealistic Dreamers, was selected for publication in December 2011 as part of a compilation of works entitled, Downtown Stories.

Originally from Rochester, NY, Rachel spent ten years traveling the USA and parts of Europe performing and writing. She currently lives in upstate NY with her husband where she is a sought after instructor, teaching various theater, dance, and playwriting classes along with private music lessons. Rachel finds it a joy as well as a privilege to train young writers and performers.
