L.M. Browning

Author's Bio

L.M. Browning grew up in a small fishing village in Connecticut. A longtime student of religion, nature, art, and philosophy these themes permeate her work. In 2010, she wrote a three-title contemplative poetry series that went on to garner several accolades including a total of 3 pushcart-prize nominations and the Nautilus Gold Medal for Poetry in 2013. In late 2011 she followed up this success with her first full-length novel, The Nameless Man. Balancing her passion for writing with her love of education and publishing, Browning is a graduate of the University of London and a Fellow with the League of Conservationist Writers. She is partner at Hiraeth Press; Co-Founder of Written River: A Journal of Eco-Poetics as well as Founder and Executive Editor of The Wayfarer: A Journal of Contemplative Literature. In 2011, Browning opened Homebound Publications—a rising independent publishing house based in New England. Her title, Fleeting Moments of Fierce Clarity: Journal of a New England Poet, was named a finalist in the Next Generation Indie Book Awards. She currently divides her time between her home in southeastern Connecticut and her work in Boston. Her next poetry collection, Vagabonds and Sundries: Poetic Remnants of Lives Past, is now available.
