T.m. Lawson doesn’t know how to write bios. They’re really the most ridiculous thing, ever. All they can say about themselves is that they love writing – it’s as good as a recreational drug. They frequently pick poetry and prose poems to wail on humanity (Oh … the humanity!) but works with all literary mediums – except plays. Never plays.

They are currently at work on their novel and a poetry chapbook, pursuing visual and textile arts.

They have a B.A. in English Literature and Creative Writing from UCLA, currently pursuing an M.F.A. in Creative Writing at UCSD. They currently live in San Diego, CA.
