Dr. Karen Laing

As a teacher of writing for more than 30 years and counting, I have continued to hope and believe that overhearing the thoughts inside one’s head may help someone else. Now I take my own medicine. As a practitioner of the writing cure, I am willing to believe it will work in my case as well. I poet, I parent, profess, and even when no one is around to share it, I laugh the delicious laughter of dervishes, unapologetically on and off the page.
