Featured Poet – Lauren Camp
I am pleased introduce Lauren Camp, our featured artist for Issue #7. I became acquainted with Lauren’s writing when she submitted poems to the journal for Issue #3, though her work is widely published. Her poems appear in Beloit Poetry Journal, Cave Wall, Rhino, and Hotel Amerika, among others. In her essay, “The desert has come to define me,” which appears on page 2 of this issue, Lauren shares her thoughts on being an artist today in the American Southwest, specifically New Mexico. The following poems give us a deeper glimpse into that special place.
