Grace Safford is a writer from Elmore, Vermont, a town 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 genre of choice is realistic fiction, but she has a love for magical realism, satire, and creative non-fiction. Her work has appeared in Puddlefar Literary Magazine, Weathervane Magazine, and The Well Magazine. Currently, she is living in Burlington, Vermont—a much bigger place than Elmore. She is in the midst of writing the first draft of her novel.
