Laura Grace Weldon is the author of the poetry collections Portals, Blackbird and Tending as well as Free Range Learning, a handbook of natural learning.
Laura’s background includes teaching nonviolence, writing collaborative poetry with nursing home residents, facilitating support groups for abuse survivors, and writing sardonic greeting cards. She works as a book editor as well as editor of Braided Way: Faces and Voices of Spiritual Practice. She also leads workshops on memoir, poetry, and creative thinking.
She runs the highly informative Free Range Learning community page on Facebook and the entirely silly Subversive Cooking page on Facebook. On occasion she tweets from the Twitter perch @earnestdrollery
Laura lives on a small farm. Although she has deadlines to meet she tends to wander from the computer to preach hope, snort with laughter, cook subversively, ponder life’s deeper meaning, talk to livestock, sing to bees, walk dogs, make messy art, concoct tinctures, watch foreign films, and hide in books.
