HELLO THERE 
I’m Lauren Haldeman and I like to make things. I make poetry + comics + puppets + films. I even made a human being!

This page is a place where patrons can learn, be inspired and find great resources.
Here are some of the perks I share with my patrons:

  • tiny prints in the mail
  • limited-edition broadsides
  • hand-drawn digital portraits
  • sneak peeks of comics panels and illustrations
  • how-to videos for sketching and drawing
  • time-lapse Procreate drawing videos
  • prompts for creating writing, poetry and comics
  • creative writing syllabus examples and other resources for teachers
  • hi-res PDFs and other goodies

GOALS
My goal is to connect with others by creating work that is honest and accessible.

I especially want to create approachable art, art that addresses the shared human emotions of vulnerability, pain, joy, shame.

And I want to reach a broad audience of people - especially people who may feel intimidated by literature or poetry - and include them in the experience.

In all my work, I want to put more honesty out into the world, along with humor, sweetness, and courage.

You can be a part of this.

ABOUT ME
Here are my basic stats:

I am the author of the poetry collections INSTEAD OF DYING (winner of the Colorado Prize for Poetry), CALENDAY (Rescue Press, 2014) and THE ECCENTRICITY IS ZERO (Digraph Press, 2014).

I've received the Iowa Artist Fellowship, the Sustainable Arts Foundation Award, the Colorado Prize for Poetry & the fellowships from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop.

My work has appeared in Tin House, Colorado Review, Fence, The Iowa Review and The Rumpus.

I work as a web developer, web designer and editor during the daytime. Also: I’m a mom and make paintings.
