I’m a twenty year old writer and editor from Birmingham, AL. I’m living in Nashville to pursue a major in Publishing and a minor in Journalism from Belmont University.

Hi, I’m Grace.

I’m a student at Belmont University studying Book Publishing and Journalism. While I initially attended Belmont University with the intention of majoring in classical piano performance, I quickly realized my true passion for writing.

Since then, I have worked for companies like Dexterity Books and Jones Literary. I have also assisted author Joy Jordan-Lake, and I have copyedited for Belmont University’s literary magazine, Belmont Story Review. 

What do I do?
