Founded in 2014 by Rachel Pilcher, a writer, educator, and librarian with almost two decades of publishing and teaching experience, the mission of the Fort Worth Writers Boot Camp is to instill a sense of empowerment to people to bring out the writer within by offering writing workshops and critique groups for a variety of formats. 

Rachel Pilcher, writer, founder of  Fort Worth Writer’s Boot Camp and publisher at Sleeping Panther Press, holds Bachelor of Arts in English and History from Texas Wesleyan University and a Master of Library Science from Texas Woman’s University. Rachel worked for several years in Editorial and Development for Harcourt College Publishers, but when the company sold, she transferred her focus to teaching.  Now, with almost two decades of experience in education as an English teacher and Librarian working with students to improve their writing skills, Rachel has developed an easy teaching technique that will accommodate every writers' learning style. Rachel has published essays and articles in Aries, the Lone Star Film Festival Film Review, Panther City Review, and the Fort Worth Weekly, as well as a short book for teachers, titled Classroom Management for the Real World.
