Sarah Grieve

Sarah Grieve's mesmerizing poetry chapbook, Honey My Tongue, was selected as the recipient of the 2014 Palooka Press Chapbook Award. Sarah is an accidental sun follower—living in California, Florida, and Arizona.  She’s a terrible California native: she doesn’t surf and didn’t eat sushi until she wasn’t living there any longer. She’s been lost in every major city she has ever visited and finds that is the best way to see the world and write about it. As a child, she wanted to be a dentist, an orphan, and a princess—all at the same time. She loves Broadway musicals and starred in several during high school. Her lifetime free-throw percentage is better than Wilt Chamberlain’s, but that’s not saying much. She has been known to cry at television commercials, greeting cards, and movie previews. Her great grandmother used to say, “Don’t bother telling a story if you’re not going to embellish it.”
