My name is Sarah Richards, and I am a lifelong Southern belle who will never put sugar in her grits.
I have been published in Bella Grace magazine, writersdigest.com, and my story, The Ghoul of Whitmire Cemetery, set in my hometown of Pensacola, Florida, was recognized as an Honorable Mention and published in The Saturday Evening Post’s “Great American Short Stories” anthology in 2016.
The Post-It Poet, set at my alma mater of Pensacola State College, placed as an Honorable Mention in the 2019 contest.
I have worked as a freelance reporter and currently offer my writing, editing, and tutoring services as an independent contractor: https://www.upwork.com/freelancers/~01b62717f7062a20c7. I am a professional writing tutor and work-study student at two different colleges, as well as a proofreader for Grammarly—all while working towards my B.A. in Creative Writing.
My latest hobbies are making personalized bookmarks and Shutterfly gift books which incorporate that graphic design element.
