Lauren Brazeal’s first full-length collection of poetry, Gutter, centered around her homelessness as a teenager and was published by Yes Yes Books in 2018. Her individual poems, essays, and fiction have appeared in journals such as Verse Daily, Smartish Pace, Barrelhouse & Diagram. She is currently earning her PhD in Literature from UT Dallas and working on her second full-length manuscript, written with the collaboration of the Huaorani people (an indigenous tribe from Amazonian Ecuador she has worked with for many years.)
She currently teaches in Dallas. When not devising lectures or writing, she can be found dancing with her four-year-old son, Atreyu, and perfecting her carnitas recipe.
