Kelsey Daly is a writer and photographer living in Minneapolis. She worked as an assistant for the Veteran’s Book Project, a series of workshops that helped survivors of war and refugees write autobiographical books, as well as the Positive Stories Project at the Research and Documentation Center in Sarajevo, which sought stories of heroism across the ethno-religious divides of the 1992–1995 conflict. She is currently finishing her first YA fantasy novel, Quillfall, which was the recipient of a 2020 Minnesota State Artist Initiative Grant.
