Grace Pickard is a native Nevadan from Reno who has been writing since she was young. She likes to write poetry and even published a book of poetry when she was in high school! Grace played violin throughout her childhood, and with poetry, she is able to channel music into her writing. Much of the themes found in her writing are dystopian realities of female life, and she especially likes to write about things that make people uncomfortable because it can expose them to different perspectives that they may not have even known existed. Check out her work in the newest edition of Brushfire!
