Lauren Levin is a poet, mixed-genre writer, and art writer, author of The Braid (Krupskaya, 2016; winner of the San Francisco State Poetry Center Book Award) and Justice Piece // Transmission (Timeless, Infinite Light, 2018). With Emji Spero, they were developmental editor for We Both Laughed in Pleasure: The Selected Diaries of Lou Sullivan, edited by Ellis Martin and Zachary Ozma (Nightboat, 2019), and with Eric Sneathen, they are editing Camille Roy’s selected prose. Their gender identity is some mix of belated queer, Jewish great-aunt, and aspirational Frank O’Hara. They are still figuring it out. They live in Richmond, California, are from New Orleans, Louisiana, and are committed to queer art, intersectional feminism, being a parent, and anxiety.
