Lauren Gudath, born in Tampa in 1970, lives in San Francisco. Wolves, her long poem written in 1995, was published as a chapbook by Xurban press. Her work has appeared in Superflux, Proliferation, Clamour and Idiom. She is a young poet whose careful, broken and bruised line extends a remarkable contention, like a blanket of starlight, over the materials of a woman's life.
