Lorna Rose writes poetry and creative nonfiction. Her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Rising Phoenix Review, Mothers Always Write, A Quiet Courage, Red Fez, and elsewhere. Originally from the Chicago area, she now lives in Washington State. Because mountains. Her in-progress memoir was a finalist at Pacific Northwest Writers’ Association in 2017. When not wrangling a 2- and 4-year old, she secretly fantasizes about being interviewed on NPR’s Fresh Air.
