All Blue So Late

Laura Swearingen-Steadwell
About the Author

LAURA SWEARINGEN-STEADWELL is the author of How to Seduce a White Boy in Ten Easy Steps. A Cave Canem Fellow and a graduate of Warren Wilson’s M.F.A. Program for Writers, she is an associate editor for PEN America: A Journal for Writers and Readers and was a finalist in 2010’s Women of the World Poetry Slam.

"All Blue So Late is a haunting coming of age; a slow and writhing eruption of womanhood through layers of heat, siren and loss. Laura Swearingen-Steadwell has a plaintive, truthful voice that ripples with blues and never wavers towards solipsism. She reckons with an American landscape of Midwestern fluorescence and coastal grit to render poems fused with blistered song." —Tyehimba Jess, Author of Olio and Leadbelly
