Writer and educator Lauren Camp works in the confluence of sound, psychology and language.  Her writing distills the world to an essence, a place full of longing, depth and, at times, great sadness.
Lauren is the author of three books of poetry, including One Hundred Hungers (Tupelo Press, 2016), which won the Dorset Prize. Her other two books are The Dailiness (Edwin E. Smith Publishing, 2013), winner of the National Federation of Press Women 2014 Poetry Book Prize and a World Literature Today “Editor’s Pick,” and This Business of Wisdom (West End Press, 2010).
