I am the author of the poetry collections INSTEAD OF DYING (winner of the 2017 Colorado Prize for Poetry) & CALENDAY (Rescue Press, 2014).
I work as a web developer, web designer and editor during the daytime. At night, I draw comics and write. I enjoy hauling wood, chopping wood and burning wood as well.
I received my M.F.A. from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and have received an Iowa Arts Fellowship, a Sustainable Arts Foundation Award and visiting artist fellowships from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, Carnegie Mellon University, Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and University of Cape Town, South Africa.
You can find me online at http://laurenhaldeman.com, and my books are available at the Center for Literary Publishing and Rescue Press.
Also: I’m a mom. I make humans too.
