Laura Rosenthal’s work has appeared in New Square and Kenyon Review. She would like to thank Allan Cohen and Rabbi David Wolfman for sharing the folktales and the niggun, a form of Jewish religious song or tune sung by groups, that inspire “Insomnia,” which is her first publication.
She holds a BA from Colby College and an MFA from Emerson College, where she won the graduate student award in fiction in 2020.
Rosenthal works and lives in Boston, her hometown.
