Hey. Hi. Hello. 

I'm Laura Relyea.
That's pronounced |rel•yā|

My essays, reviews, poems, and features have been published in Oxford American, The Bitter Southerner, Thought Catalog, Monkey Bicycle, Necessary Fiction, and elsewhere. 

For two years, November 2015 through November 2017, I was the Executive Editor of ArtsATL, Atlanta's only publication solely dedicated to the arts. 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

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. 

I've left Atlanta but it will always have a big space in my heart and mind. I am forever in its debt for the opportunities and people it brought into my life.
