Rachel L. Beitsch is an author and poet who hails from Israel. Her book Rain to Aifa has been well received, but she is also a regular performer at the Jeruselum Poetry Slam in Israel. A poetry slam is a competition at which poets read or recite original work. These performances are usually judged by selected members of the audience or by a panel of judges. In this performance Rachel's poem focuses on compulsive skin picking. It is a powerful performance that beautifully describes what it is like to have dermatillomania, while still managing to get the message across with a touch of sarcasm. You can follow updates on Rachel's works via her facebook page.
