Laura Kennedy is a freelance writer and journalist based in Dublin. She writes a weekly column in The Irish Times called Coping, which is based around the everyday usefulness of philosophy. She also writes a beauty column on Saturdays in The Irish Times Weekend Magazine, and co-authored Irish Beauty Book, About Face, with her friend and colleague Aisling Mc Dermott, as well as contributing features to publications like The Irish Times.  

While writing, enjoying good cups of tea all over Dublin and annoying people on Twitter, Laura is working on finishing her Ph.D. in philosophy at Trinity College Dublin.
