A 2018 finalist for the Lambda Literary and CLMP Firecracker Awards, Kirkus Reviews called it, “groundbreaking,” and the Los Angeles Review of Books found it “intoxicatingly rousing.” Lawlor is also the author of the poetry chapbook Position Papers (Factory Hollow Press, 2016). Their writing has appeared in various literary journals including Ploughshares, Mutha, the Millions, jubilat, the Brooklyn Rail, Faggot Dinosaur, and Encyclopedia, Vol. II. They’ve been awarded fellowships by Lambda Literary and Radar Labs.

They teach writing at Mount Holyoke College in Western Massachusetts.
