CALENDAY IS A BOOK

IT’S A WHAT?

Calenday is a book of poems that you can read! I wrote it with my mind and my hands. It is mostly about blueprints, ghosts, parents & children, but it is also about data-syncing, animals showing love, the unseen world, sycamores…

DIGITAL STORYTELLING

I like to make multimedia events that combine photographs, video, animation, sound and text

LIFE

Right now? The smaller month inside of this month.

OH, HELLO THERE

Hi! I’m Lauren Haldeman. I am the author of the poetry collection Calenday (Rescue Press, 2014). I work as the web developer, web designer and editor for this website, as well as several other websites, including the Writing University website at the University of Iowa and the Iowa Review. I received my M.F.A. from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, and have been a finalist for the Walt Whitman award and the Colorado Prize for Poetry. Also: I’m a mom and make paintings.
