In 2003 Griffin Rae Birdsong started writing about sasquatches and draculas. Her career as a writer would begin in 2008 at ISU where she studied english and was featured in the Black Rock and Sage Journal in 2009. A few years after dropping out she became one of the creators of The Sentimentalist Zine in 2013, which she used as an outlet to chronicle her trans-feminist whimsy and to promote local writers in her home town of Idaho Falls. Shortly after she would move to Boise and become one of the coordinators for the Death Rattle Writer’s festival in 2014. Her first book “A Pansexual Journey Through Time” was published through H.O. Tanager Press in 2015. She currently lives in Nampa where she still occasionally writes love poems about draculas, and is a regular contributor to the Death Rattle Review.
