A young widow and Cancer survivor, Stacey Lawrence teaches Poetry and Creative Writing at a public high school in New Jersey. Her work can be seen in The Comstock Review, Eunoia Review, Flora Fiction, Street Light Press and others. She was long and short-listed for the 2019 Fish Prize in Poetry. She has a BA degree in Theatre and a MA in teaching English and Literature and was awarded a fellowship to The Robert Frost House in 2016 and 2017.

Nikki Giovanni says of Stacey’s book FALL RISK, scheduled for release in August of 2021 “It’s so seldom a book of poems can contain both love poems and acceptance of grief. Take Stacey’s poems to a couch, curl under your great-grandmother’s quilt, and understand love and loss are one.”
