Lori A. May

Lori A. May writes across the genres in fiction, nonfiction and poetry. She edits, teaches and travels as a frequent guest speaker--all the while drinking copious amounts of coffee.

Her latest book, The Write Crowd: Literary Citizenship & The Writing Life, is now available from Bloomsbury. Also new from 2014 is Square Feet, a full-length poetry book, available from Accents Publishing. Lori is also the author of The Low-Residency MFA Handbook: A Guide for Prospective Creative Writing Students (Continuum/Bloomsbury), stains: early poems and two crime novels. She's polishing up a travel/immigration memoir and, under the influence of caffeine, is at work on another manuscript.

A current Pushcart Prize nominee, for poetry and nonfiction, you'll find Lori's short creative nonfiction in journals such as Hippocampus Magazine, Phoebe, Brevity and Midwestern Gothic. She also writes freelance articles and these appear in The Writer, Writer's Digest, The Atlantic and other magazines.
