Laurie Zupan is a parent, teacher, poet and writer.

Laurie is the extremely proud mother of her brilliant, adult son. She’s thrilled when he comes to visit and doesn’t miss a chance to go visit him.

Laurie’s students have ranged from kindergarten to college. She’s taught in the greater Los Angeles area for over 31 years (although you’d never guess it by her youthful appearance!).

Laurie has had writing work published in anthologies and magazines including Writer’s Digest.  See the publications page for more information and to read a few poems.

In 2001, Laurie earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing from Antioch University. Going back to school and being immersed in poetry while being guided by wonderful teachers and enthusiastic and talented students is still among her most memorable experiences.

Laurie’s inspired by beautiful scenes in nature and cities, and she loves to take photos.
