Laura Stott is the author of two collections of poetry, Blue Nude Migration (Lynx House Press, 2020) and In the Museum of Coming and Going (New Issues Poetry and Prose, 2014). Her poems have also been published in Hayden’s Ferry Review, Bellingham Review, The Rupture, Western Humanities Review, Sugar House Review, Copper Nickel, Barrow Street, Adirondack Review, and Kettle Blue Review as well as other journals and anthologies. Laura was raised in Draper, Utah. She holds an MFA from the Inland Northwest Center for Writers at Eastern Washington University and a BA in English Literature from Brigham Young University. She is an Instructor of English at Weber State University in Ogden. After some time in Los Angeles and a decade of summers working in Alaska, she now lives with her husband and daughters in northern Utah.
Laura is very interested in combining poetry at any opportunity with other art forms and the sciences. She loves playing with surrealism in her own work and is also deeply rooted in the natural world. She sees her own poetry as straddling a line, keeping one foot in this world and one foot somewhere else.
