About Her Work
Laura writes comedic and ensemble-based stories often inspired by non-fiction. Her work focuses on the intersections of race, class, disability, education, and gender. What she doesn't know from her personal experience, she researches, primarily through interviews and collaboration with other artists.
Even more than writing, Laura loves rewriting.
