Founder & Curator

Lisa D.Gray

Lisa is a writer, curator, and social justice warrior who loves to cook and sees possibilities waiting to burst free in bubbles blown into air.


Her interests range from dancing (her first career goal: Rockette) to star gazing, and if an animal lived with her, it'd be a turtle.

She writes about the things that intrigue and perplex her and does it with humor and insight.


She earned an MFA from Mills College and completed a residency at the Vermont Studio Center and a fellowship at The Fine Arts Works Center. Her work appears in the As Us Literary Journal. Mission at Tenth and the anthology New Haven Noir. She's a member of the San Francisco Writers Grotto and won an Edgar Award in 2019.
