Julie Lythcott-Haims HeadshotJulie Lythcott-Haims is emerging. A recovering corporate lawyer and nostalgic former university dean, she is now an MFA (Poetry) student at California College of the Arts. She tends to write about things people don’t want to talk about, which is why she could not begin to emerge as a writer until the blank stares or mumbled responses of others didn’t matter so much to her anymore. “A Day at the Races” is the first of her poems to be published, and it will make its stage debut in San Francisco in January 2013 as part of Small Press Traffic’s ‘Poet’s Theater.’ If you’re reading this you’ve probably read the poem, and if so Julie thanks you. She is also deeply grateful to the editors at As Us for making this possible. Follow her on Facebook and Twitter to see where she emerges next!

    This poem goes unerringly into my heart with its cacophony of voices telling the struggle, and the way the fonts let us tease them out separately if we want to. What a powerful new poet we have.
