Tara Grier

Tara Grier is working toward her Masters degree in Writing Arts and is currently in her last year of graduate school. She has been working with Singularity Press since Spring of 2020, and has enjoyed every second. She loves that Singularity offers opportunities to both students and aspiring authors that is unlike what anyone else is currently offering. She can usually be found agonizing over the latest draft of her manuscript with a cold coffee beside her or procrastinating said manuscript-editing by rewatching New Girl.

Chloe likes to lay on her couch with a cup of peppermint tea, dreaming of all the stories she has crammed in her head instead of actually writing any of them.
