What's frozen in time cannot be forgotten.
It all started with a Lisa Frank notebook. Armed with a handful of change, Candace purchased her first journal, embarking on a journey that’s over 15 years in the making. Always obsessed with “capturing the moment,” she nourished a passion for documentary filmmaking as an undergrad at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she was part of an award-winning multimedia team at The Daily Tar Heel.
Since then, Candace has adamantly pursued her many crafts, publishing in Glass Poetry Press, Quiet Circle Magazine, Bop Dead City, Yellow Chair Review and more. Her nonfiction credits include Urban Faith, The Huffington Post, CRWN Magazine, and MTV. In 2016, she self-published her first chapbook Letters About Losing You.
Candace was a 2017 Ella Fountain Pratt Emerging Artist Grant recipient and a featured poet at the 2017 West End Poetry Festival. An Ohio native, she currently resides in North Carolina with plans to see the world. It is her goal to create, capture and stay inspired.
