Griffiths is the author of four collections of poetry, including Miracle Arrhythmia, The Requited Distance, Mule & Pear, and most recently, Lighting the Shadow. Her visual and literary work has appeared widely including the New York Times, Poets & Writers, American Poetry Review, Callaloo, Guernica, Lit Hub, ESPNW, Apogee, Transition, and many others.

Griffiths is the recipient of fellowships at Yaddo, Provincetown Fine Arts Work Center, Vermont Studio Center, Millay Colony, and the Cave Canem Foundation, North America’s premier home for black poetry founded in 1996 to remedy the underrepresentation and isolation of African American poets in the literary landscape.

Griffiths’s forthcoming photography exhibition, American Stanzas: 2006-2016, presents a decade of Griffiths’ archival portraits of the Cave Canem Foundation, and will open at Poets House this fall.
