Announcing our final 2018 author:
Laura's six-story collection WAKE IN THE NIGHT will be available this fall through our website.
Laura Krughoff’s debut novel, My Brother’s Name, was a finalist for a 2014 Lambda Literary Foundation Award. Her current novel project, based on her Pushcart Prize winning short story, “Halley’s Comet,” follows the personal and political lives of two women as they navigate the decade between Massachusetts legalizing same-sex marriage and the U.S. Supreme Court overturning the Defense of Marriage Act. Her short fiction and essays have appeared in publications ranging from literary journals such as The Threepenny Review to the Gay Voices section of The Huffington Post to the podcast of the Chicago-based story-telling performance collective Second Story. She teaches in the English Department and in the Gender and Queer Studies Program at the University of Puget Sound.
