Sophfronia Scott

Sophfronia Scott has more than 20 years of experience as a professional writer. She honed her craft working with some of the toughest editors in the world during her career at Time and People magazines. There she developed the uncanny ability to whittle massive amounts of facts and ideas into a single cohesive, compelling form. When she published her first novel, “All I Need to Get By,” with St. Martin’s Press, one prominent reviewer referred to Sophfronia as potentially “one of the best writers of her generation.”

She holds a bachelor’s degree in English from Harvard and an MFA in writing (fiction, and creative nonfiction) from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Sophfronia now focuses on writing novels, short stories, and essays and her work has appeared in journals such as Killens Review of Arts & Letters, Saranac Review, Ruminate, Numéro Cinq, Mid-American Review, Barnstorm Literary Journal and Sleet Magazine in addition to More,, and O, The Oprah Magazine.
