EGGERT-CROWE: I haven't had many strange experiences at readings, but I did once sit next to a man who heckled and cat-called two of my favorite writers. I thought he was a lunatic who'd wandered in off the street, but it turned out he was their teacher and editor. Probably better that I don't name names.
Lauren Eggert-Crowe was born and raised in rural Pensylvania. After a four year stint in the magical fairyland of Santa Cruz, where she lived so close to the ocean she could hear sea lions from her bedroom window, she relocated to Los Angeles to work as a freelance writer. She has written for The Rumpus, L.A. Review of Books, The Murky Fringe, and Blue Jean Gourmet. Her poetry has been published in several journals, including Puerto Del Sol, DIAGRAM,Terrain.org, Water-Stone Review, Eleven Eleven, and We Are So Happy To Know Something. Her first chapbook, The Exhibit, is forthcoming from Hyacinth Girl Press in January 2013.
