About Lauren Harkawik.

I’m a writer of fiction, articles, and essays. 

My fiction has been published in New Reader Magazine, Goats Milk Magazine, and Sweet Tree Review. In 2021, my short story, "Joey Button," which was originally published in New Reader Magazine, was distributed worldwide in Short Édition's short story dispensers. I am currently seeking representation for a middle grade novel and am at work on a couple of new projects.

My nonfiction has been published in Salt Hill, INTO, and Narratively. In 2022, my autobiographical poem, "A Big Life," was published in Autofocus.


I’m a regular contributor to The Deerfield Valley News, where I report the news of my community; Times Union Hudson Valley, where I report on outdoor and science topics; and The Takeout, where I explore food and culture.  

In all of my writing — fiction, non-fiction, journalism, children's writing, poems — I'm seeking one thing: to better understand the world around me and world within me.
