As a creative writer, Lorena is a published poet, a budding playwright and in-progress novelist.
Her voice is a distinctive one, based on her wildly disparate experiences as a child from a war-torn country to an Ivy League graduate to a Midwestern mom. She has served two terms on the Board of Directors of the Loft Literary Center, the nation’s largest and most comprehensive literary center.
