A Midwesterner at heart, Lisa Mecham lives in Los Angeles with her two daughters and the dogs they suckered her into.
Her work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and the James Kirkwood Award through the UCLA Extension Writing Program and appears in The Rumpus, Juked, BOAAT, and elsewhere. She has also been spotlighted as a "Writer on Fire" by The Toast.
Lisa has served as an editor, advisory board member and reader for such literary magazines as The Scofield, Origins and Tin House. She also works as a freelance grant writer for non-profit organizations serving social justice issues.
Lisa is a slave to nostalgia and when she isn't procrastinating, she's revising her first novel and working on a short film.
