Grace Safford is a writer from a town in Northern Vermont so small many Vermont maps list it simply as a lake. She spent her childhood wandering through the woods, getting bitten by mosquitos, and writing on any piece of paper she could get her hands on. Grace’s genres of choice are realistic fiction, magical realism, and fairy tales. Her work has appeared in literary magazines such as Twist in Time, Firewords, Lucent Dreaming, and Corvid Queen. She is in the midst of writing the first draft of her novel and a nature-based activity book manuscript.
