I don't know why I've been resisting becoming a member on Goodreads for so long.  I just started today, as a way of procrastination, and it's actually a good website.

Arsenic Lobster 2011 Anthology

I am honored to have Susan Yount publish my poems in her anthology and am so looking forward to seeing it.  Check out Arsenic Lobster, I discovered it after reading a book by Chelsey Minnis and seeing it in her acknowledgements as a journal that published one of her poems, and I loved the journal's name and just had to see it for myself.

Home Again

Back from the wedding, back from the honeymoon.  Back to writing!  I need to catch up motherly fast.

New Blog

Welcome to Laura Bender's homepage!  You can browse works, bio and contact information.  I have quite a few things published under my maiden name, (I'm getting married June 2011) but I decided not to include any of that here.
