Lauren Sypniewski

Writing Center Coordinator


Lauren grew up in northern Michigan (though not a Yooper!) and remained in her home state where she received her B.A. in English from Alma College. She then moved to Boston to obtain her M.F.A. in Creative Nonfiction from Emerson College. There, she began teaching composition in addition to pursuing her craft in creative writing. Her M.F.A. thesis—as well as most of her writing—navigates a relationship with nature, exploring the similarities between the human condition and the natural world. Lauren has been at Dixie State University since 2014.
