Laura Wetherington’s first book, A Map Predetermined and Chance (Fence Books 2011), was selected by C.S. Giscombe for the 2010 National Poetry Series. The Brooklyn Rail called the book “humble, folksy, romantic, tough, inventive, and not over-programmed.” She has work published in the Sonora Review, BathHouse Journal, Otoliths, Fence, Verse, Eleven Eleven, Little Red Leaves, Bombay Gin, Oxford Magazine, and Just Magazine. Poems are forthcoming in the Minnesota Review, Drunken Boat, and in a Nightboat anthology, The Sonnets: Translating and Rewriting Shakespeare. Laura co-founded and currently 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.” Dick Erasures, a chapbook, is available as an ebook from Red Ceilings Press. She has a number of articles and interviews about collaboration at One Pause Poetry. 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. Recent grants include funding from the Nevada Arts Council and the Vermont Studio Center. She is currently working on a book of fake translations.
