Laura Forman was born in Basingstoke in 1979, educated at Cambridge and lives in South London. Her poetry has been published in various magazines and the anthology Generation Txt. She was recently commissioned by Galaxy Chocolate. Laura works as the writer at Elmwood London, a design agency based in Soho. The space is more like a bar than an office so Laura programmes and hosts a quarterly poetry night there called SoPo. She occasionally reviews pop music and fiction for The Financial Times.
