Tamara Burross Grisanti is a writer and editor who lives in Western New York, land of lake-effect snow. She enjoys dark literature, proofing, rare typos, designing literary journals, working on her novel, reading, and Oxford commas. In 2014 she joined the masthead of ELJ (Elm Leaves Journal) as associate editor, and in 2017 she launched an online journal for dark literature, Coffin Bell Journal. When she’s not being a literature dork, she plays guitar badly and parodies parodies. Tamara is a two-time Pushcart Prize nominee, and her poetry and fiction appear or are forthcoming in New World Writing, Eunoia Review, Chicago Literati, Former Cactus, Pussy Magic, The Literary Hatchet, and Corvus Review.
