Christina Ciufo is a passionate writer in poetry, short stories, flash fictions, fables, and completing her first novel. At a very young age, she always had a passion for writing stories and poems, specifically in fairytales, folklore, supernatural, and horror. She truly enjoys writing about folklore, the supernatural, and horror in various writing genres because she believes by telling stories about witches, vampires, ghosts, werewolves, demons, and other supernatural forces, they evoke a haunting and terrifying imagination that brings joy and frights. After graduating Sacred Heart University with a BA in English, she continued to expand her writing abilities at Manhattanville College’s MFA Creative Writing Program and by May 2017, graduated with an MFA degree in Creative Writing. She has recently completed Sacred Heart University's Education Program in December 2018 with a MAT in Teaching in both elementary and secondary and is currently a Sunday School Teacher. She gained her first publication in May 2019 in Pub House Books' Gravitas for her three poems. Her poem 'Marionette Strings' was published in August 2019 in Spillwords. She has three other poems, which will be published in Curating Alexandria and Ovunque Siamo in September 2019 and Bonnie's Crew in December 2019.
