O Garden-Dweller was awarded Second Place in the category of Poetry in the 2018 Catholic Press Association Book Awards.
Laura’s poetry chapbook O Garden-Dweller (Finishing Line Press, 2017) is available from Finishing Line Press, Amazon, and barnesandnoble.com. This short poetry collection is a reimagining of the classic poetic text of the Song of Songs and what it might mean today in terms of how we seek out the divine in our own backyards, literally and figuratively.
A new essay by Laura on divine indwelling and the thought of Jean Vanier, Spark Calling to Spark: Divine Indwelling and Community, was featured recently by the Mission of St. Thorlak.
New poetry by Laura can be found in or is forthcoming in the following publications: “Cherith” in The Windhover Issue 22.1 Spring 2018; “Substance Theory” in America; “The Prince Decides” in NonBinary Review #16 (Zoetic Press); and “The Superfluous Hen” in Riddled with Arrows.
