Writer.  Teacher.  Dog-lover.  Most importanly, mother.  My name is Laura Benda, and I teach Creative Writing at the Institute of Production and Recording, as well as other writing and communication classes.  I received my master's degree in Creative Writing from Hamline University in 2011 and my bachelor's degree in Journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2002.  I'm currently working on revising and finding a publisher for my manuscript, A Memoir in Men, as I try to convince my 2-year-old and my 2-month-old that sleeping through the night is a good thing.
