Hey. Hi. Hello.
I'm Laura Relyea.
That's pronounced |rel•yā|
I live, write, and run in Atlanta, Georgia.
My book, All Glitter Everything, a collection of flash prose, was released by Deer Bear Wolf in March 2015. A portion of the book was included in The 2015 &Now Experimental Fiction Anthology, released biennially by the University of Notre Dame.
In 2013 I was selected by ArtsATL as one of their 30 Under 30 for my work with Vouched Books, a not-for-profit organization that supports independent literature in Atlanta and elsewhere around the country. Currently, John Carroll and I co-curate Transgression, Deer Bear Wolf's immersive literary series.
These days I work as the Executive Editor of ArtsATL. Prior to that I was a Writer & Editor with the creative, story-driven think tank at Edgar Allan. Before that I worked at Scoutmob as the Managing Editor, and prior to that contributed at Creative Loafing, and PASTE.
Though I can't claim to have a hometown, Atlanta seems to suit me just fine. (This is in spite of my allergy to peaches and slight distrust of Waffle House – please don't tell on me.)
