Lauren Tate is an up-and-coming author from the city of Detroit. She is a University of Michigan alumna. Her first book - a small collection of poems “Fragments of a Full Memory” was self-published on Amazon in 2019. She has written her second book - a collection of short stories titled “Hair Me Now!” that is available to purchase on Amazon (2022).
Lauren’s work mostly focuses on the stories of girls and women, especially those of color. Lack of representation in literature and on-screen inspired her to tell the stories of girls and women through novels, short stories, and poetry. Her work is new and bold, daring to tell everyday stories of women that are forgotten or simply ignored. She reminds us that these stories are worth writing about, long overdue and it’s definitely worth the read!
