Grace Safford is a writer and gardening enthusiast from a town in Vermont so small a few cartographers once confused it for a lake. She has been working at VCFA since 2020, first as the Institutional Advancement Assistant and now as the Communications & Engagement Coordinator with the IA team.

She is the Creator and Editor-in-Chief of COZY magazine and a staff writer at Flat Ink magazine. She’s previously worked with The Young Writers Project, The Mud Season Review, Books Ireland, and HarperCollins Children’s. Grace’s micro-chaps, short stories, poems, and essays have appeared in various publications. Her CNF story “We Ate Tupperware Meals in the Language of Grief” was published in the book What She’s Having (Dear Damsels Press, 2021), which The Guardian named one of the best food books of 2021. She is currently in the midst of drafting a YA novel and a nature-themed activity book.
