Reyzl Grace is a poet, essayist, translator, librarian, short story writer, and post-Soviet Jewish lesbian from Alaska. Her work draws on her wide travels, her facility in multiple languages, and her academic training in history and comparative theology to set prisms inside issues of gender, heritage, mortality, and the anthropocene. She is a past Pushcart nominee and finalist for the Jewish Women's Poetry Prize and Best Literary Translations, with bylines in Room, Rust & Moth, So to Speak, the Times of Israel, and other publications.
A former publishing professional and teacher, she now works by day as a teen services librarian in Minneapolis and by night as a poetry editor for Psaltery & Lyre and Cordella Magazine. As a writer, an educator, and a feminist, she strives to advance linguistic equity for speakers of minoritized languages and to move toward women's liberation.
