I am a poet, filmmaker, writer, & artist based in Los Angeles, CA. I recently completed my MFA in Hybrid Poetry at California Institute of the Arts, & was previously classically theatrically trained at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London. My undergraduate degree is in writing/poetry from Eugene Lang College, The New School for Liberal Arts in New York. In Los Angeles I've studied with Andrew Wood & at the Beverly Hills Playhouse, where I received one of the inaugural summer scholarships. My full length poetry manuscript was recently named a semi finalist for Tarpaulin Sky Press' 2017 book prize. Additional information can be found on my website: natalieraymond.com.
