Laura Leigh Abby is a writer and editor. A graduate of Emerson College, she received her MFA from the New School, where she was also chosen by essayist John D’Agata as the winner of the 2013 Alumni Chapbook Contest in nonfiction for her essay “Absolutely Fine.”
About her work D’Agata had this to say: Good literature is made of words, sentences, and useful punctuation, the sequence of which is strategic, and the design of which, if it’s doing its job, creates for the reader imagery, character, drama, and meaning. The writer of “Absolutely Fine” knows this, and knows it well.
Laura Leigh’s work has appeared in such publications as Cosmopolitan, Vice, Salon, BuzzFeed, Refinery29, Dame Magazine, The Huffington post, The Billfold, Xo Jane, Modern Loss and others.
She is the creator of 2Brides2Be, an online wedding resource providing planning tools and inspiration for the modern lesbian bride. Her book of the same name is forthcoming with Rarebird and Archer Lit in early 2017.
Laura Leigh and her wife Samantha appeared on the second season of Bravo TV’s Newlyweds: The First Year and are both active in the LGBT community, most recently teaming up with the Family Equality Council, The Lesbian & Gay Big Apple Corps, and the NYC LGBT Community Center.
