Tamara Lawless

Tamara once tried to make rice krispie treats in the microwave. Unfortunately she didn't realize metal can't go in there and things got crazy. She frequently gets lost despite her affinity for maps and probably wears too much plaid. If she had to pick a favorite ice cream flavor it would be mint chocolate chip. But cookie dough is really good too.

Her poems have appeared in notebooks all over New York City and hope to one day travel to publication and find themselves.
