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, Writer’s Digest (https://www.writersdigest.com/whats-new/why-i-write-poetry-sarah-richards), and my story, “The Ghoul of Whitmire Cemetery” (https://sarahleastories.com/2017/07/01/saturday-evening-post-honorable-mention/), 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 am now an administrative assistant for a non-profit foundation and a freelance reporter for The Pensacola News Journal (https://www.pnj.com/story/news/2019/02/19/henny-penny-finds-sweet-spot-myrtle-grove/2906258002/).
My latest hobbies are making personalized bookmarks and Shutterfly gift books which incorporate that graphic design element.
