About Noreen Lace
Noreen Lace spent her youngest years in an area of Cleveland known as Collinwood before moving to the West Side of the city, the location of which is the inspiration behind West End. She spent much of her time writing in order to avoid the chaos the city streets dispensed. A few of her high school years were spent in the suburbs. The dichotomy between the city and the suburban life provided her with deep insights that manifest throughout her narratives. The strife of home life encouraged her to head for the sunshine of the West Coast.
Her fiction, poetry, and memoir exude the complexity of situations she's faced as well as the challenges she's overcome. They are rich in detail, diffused with empathy, and poetically written. Noreen Lace believes in the beauty of language to express the deepest, darkest parts of our beings.
Her fiction and poetry have appeared in a number of national as well as international literary journals, among them The Chicago Tribune's Printers Row journal, The Oleander Review, The Maine Review, among others. Her poem "All at Once" was a finalist in Medusa's Laugh's contest. And her Memoir "Memorial Day Death Watch" was a finalist for Writer Advice.
Noreen Lace has been an invited guest lecturer at various writing groups, as well as an invited reader at a number of local poetry events. She has also given lectures on Edgar Allan Poe: contexts, contributions, and influences.
