Hello! My name is Laura Cockman.

I am a writer and English teacher with experience in areas ranging from creative nonfiction to book reviews to journalism.

My writing career started in elementary school with creative fiction. Somehow I convinced a teacher that I should be allowed to read my work to other classes during the school day, so I've been performing readings for as far back as I can remember.

I believe that writing is the best way to send your message out into the world, and I want to help you to do this.

In addition to writing, I often read pieces aloud at live storytelling events like Tenx9 Nashville.

If you are interested in working together, please reach out! I would love to hear from you.
