Lauren Camp, Poet, Performer

“Lauren Camp’s voice is unique among poets writing in the United States today. It can be still and enveloping, then suddenly surprising in its complexity. We read or listen and know both the care of long-nurtured craft and the power of dramatic insight… ample and profound, strong and rewarding.”

— Margaret Randall
