Tanya Grae was born in South Carolina and raised cross-country as her father moved with military reassignments. Perhaps as a result of this vantage, her writing centers on human geography, American/Southern Gothic as myth, feminist theory, and the intersections of nature and man. Her recent work, through a biographer’s lens, focuses on four generations of women and their lives in the South. She is the author of the forthcoming chapbook Little Wekiva River (Five Oaks Press), and Yusef Komunyakaa selected her poem “The Line of a Girl” to receive the 2016 Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival Poetry Prize. A creative writing PhD candidate at Florida State University, she holds an MFA from Bennington College and a BA from Rollins College, where she won the Arden Goettling Academy of American Poets Prize. Her full-length manuscript has been a recent finalist in national competitions, and her poems have appeared or are forthcoming in AGNI, The Florida Review, New South, The Los Angeles Review, The Adroit Journal, Fjords Review, and other places.
