My name is Laurel. That's me over there. I am a publishing professional with experience in marketing and publicity, project management, writing, editing, and design. I have an MA in Writing and Publishing from Portland State University, and a BA in English from the University of Oregon.
I got into this work, first and foremost, because I believe the stories we tell matter, and because I love helping people find narratives that resonate with them.
I am currently the marketing and publicity manager at Pomegranate. I also do a little bit of freelance work on the side. (Want to work together? Get in touch!) People I've had the pleasure of working with in the past include the fine folks at D.C. Jacobson & Associates Literary Agency, Harper Perennial, Ooligan Press, Tin House Books, and Zeal Books.
