Arts Calling Podcast #30 Lauren Theresa | Plants, poetry, and writing beyond the self

Arts Calling is a podcast to celebrate creatives across disciplines and cultural backgrounds making art no matter where they are. A case for the arts as the gateway to empathy, healthy lives, and strong communities.

Hi there,

National Poetry Extravaganza continues! Today I’m excited to be arts calling Lauren Theresa!

Lauren Theresa is a divergent poet, herbalist, trauma therapist, and Hekatean witch living in NJ with her tiny family and menagerie of plants.

She moonlights as Poetry Editor with the awesome folks at Olney Magazine, and is the author of the forthcoming chapbook LOST THINGS (Bullshit Lit August ’22). Lauren’s work has been featured in HAD, Maudlin House, Rejection Letters, Gutslut Press, Tiny Wren, Warning Lines, Daily Drunk Mag, that one awkward family gathering, and more.



Thanks for coming on the show, Lauren!
