Laurie Klein

Laurie Klein writes poetry, prose, songs, and a weekly blog. Where the Sky Opens is her first book. Previous work has appeared widely in literary journals, anthologies, online zines, a chapbook, hymnals, and recordings. Klein wrote the classic praise chorus “I Love You, Lord.” An accomplished audiobook narrator (Books-in-Motion), a co-founder of Rock & Sling, and a recipient of the Thomas Merton Prize for Poetry of the Sacred, she loves life in Pacific Northwest with her eccentric, extended family and their odd pets.
