Dr Laura Haynes is a writer, editor and academic based in Glasgow, UK. She is co-director of MAP Magazine, and at The Glasgow School of Art is leader of the studio-based interdisciplinary Art Writing Graduate Programme, where she also edits The Yellow Paper: Journal for Art Writing. 

Laura’s research and writing is concerned with autotheory and biomythography as poetics for critique. Her work is interdisciplinary and cross-form, often both embodying and examining the intimate, cerebral and emotional voice as a rhetorical form where criticality is charged by correlation to the everyday. Underpinned by a feminist approach to understanding social relations between writers and artists, Laura has frequently written on forms such as anecdote, conversation and gossip as powerful and political forms of minor literature.
