Laura Wetherington's first book, A Map Predetermined and Chance (Fence Books 2011), was selected by C.S. Giscombe for the National Poetry Series. The Brooklyn Rail called the book “humble, folksy, romantic, tough, inventive, and not over-programmed.” She has two chapbooks: Dick Erasures (Red Ceilings Press 2011) and a collaboration with Jill Darling and Hannah Ensor, at the intersection of 3 (Dancing Girl Press 2014). Her work appears in the Minnesota Review, Drunken Boat, Otoliths, Verse, among others, and in two anthologies, The Sonnets: Translating and Rewriting Shakespeare (Nightboat Books 2013) and 60 Morning Talks (Ugly Duckling Presse 2014). Laura co-founded and co-edits textsound.org: an online journal of experimental poetry and sound, which Poets & Writers named one of seventeen “groundbreaking presses and magazines that are redrawing the publishing map.” Laura has taught for the French Ministry of Education, the University of Michigan, the New England Literature Program, Eastern Michigan University, and Sierra Nevada College. She currently teaches in Sierra Nevada College’s undergraduate English and low-residency MFA programs. Recent grants include funding from the Nevada Arts Council, the Vermont Studio Center, and the Fondation Ténot.
