This past October Laura got to pitch her brand new podcast to a panel of WNYC judges at the Werk It Podcast conference in L.A.! Stay tuned for the 2020 release of MisInformed, and reach out if you know anyone she should be interviewing about U.S.-Mexico immigration! In the meantime, you can get a sneak peak here.
Laura was invited to share her work at Keith Scott Ferris's art opening at the Piedmont Center for the Arts this past October.
In March Laura moderatied both a reading (Border Crossing) and an AWP panel in Portland with four wonderful authors whose work she loves and admires. You can see a video of Laura reading at Annie Bloom's Books here. You can read the story Becky Garrison wrote about the AWP panel (Art and Identity: How Race, Faith, & Sexuality Shape Us) for The Humanist here.
Laura's short story, "Pink Cathedrals" (published in the Arroyo Literary Review in 2017) was nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
Laura received honorable mention for the 2017 Glimmer Train's Short Story Award for New Writers.
