Rebecca Renner – Journalist | Editor | Fiction Writer

My name is Rebecca Renner, and I’m a journalist and fiction writer living in Boynton Beach, Florida. As a seventh-generation Floridian, not only am I a rare breed, I’m also committed to making life in my state better for everyone. So I write about the environment and social issues. I also write (maybe a bit too much) about myself.

If you’d like to learn more about me, head over to my About Me page. You can also check out my short stories, nonfiction work, and cultural criticism via links throughout the site.

In addition to writing, I teach, edit, and do speaking engagements and career coaching for writers. For more information about that, peruse my Services page.

If you would like more information, or you have a cool story you'd like to tell me, please reach out through my contact page or by emailing
