Lauren Mauldin is a writer, editor, animal lover and equestrian. Her work has appeared in The Los Angeles Times, The Plaid Horse, Sidelines News, the Los Angeles Review of Books, and other publications.
Earning her bachelor's degree at North Carolina State University, she earned an MFA in creative nonfiction at the University of California Riverside.
Growing up in North Carolina, Lauren has lived all over the country and now considers herself an honorary Texan. A lifelong equestrian, she is an editor at The Plaid Horse magazine.
"In a voice that’s confident and wry, she weaves a compelling story while tackling head-on misguided societal expectations around weight. Nonfiction co-editor Julie Patterson said she appreciated Mauldin’s 'ability to share honest stories of hurt without portraying herself as a victim.' Her writing asks important questions while never losing its humanity."
