Kristen Grace was a preacher’s kid who credits Song of Songs with inspiring her to become a queer rebel poet in unloving spaces. Grace is a journalist for 405 Magazine, a freelance copyeditor for Callisto Media, and a graduate student at Oklahoma City University’s Red Earth MFA program. She has authored a children’s book and short story collection with Literati Press in Oklahoma City, and has a new poem coming out in Focus Magazine and two in the first issue of Mid/South. In her downtime, she reads. And reads. And reads.
