Julia Laxer lives for the stories and writes in the afternoons from a messy desk in a rose-lit room in Portland, Oregon. She uses performance art and spiritual practice to explore archetype and ritual and writes poems, essays, erotica, and memoir. Julia won the Orlando Prize in Nonfiction from A Room of Her Own (AROHO) in 2014, and her work is featured in magazines, journals, and anthologies including Luna Luna Magazine, The Los Angeles Review, So-to-Speak, and Zócalo Public Square. In spring of 2018 she premiered “The Girl Who Stole Spring,” a modern retelling of the myth of Persephone. Julia is obsessed with rose and oud perfumes, Lana Del Rey, and wants to eat all the peaches.
