Lauren Quinn is a recovering blogger, failed poet, former zine-maker and demoralized travel writer. These days she’s a non-fiction writer, editor and kindergarten teacher. She’s hoping this works out better for all involved parties.
Lauren’s recent work has appeared online and in print at The Rumpus, Nerve, This Recording, The Nervous Breakdown, World Hum, We Still Like, 7×7, San Francisco Chronicle and Best Women’s Travel Writing Volumes 8 and 9. She holds a BA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University and used to write the blog Lonely Girl Travels. She tweets here and tumbles here.
Lauren currently lives in Hanoi, where she washed up after an ill-fated attempt at writing a book in Cambodia. She will always be an Oakland girl at heart.
