A midwesterner at heart, Lisa Mecham lives in Los Angeles with her two daughters and the dog they suckered her into.
Her poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction have appeared in The Rumpus, Carve, and Barrelhouse Online, among other publications. Honors include a nomination for the James Kirkwood Award through the UCLA Extension Writing Program and a nomination for the Pushcart Prize for her piece "A Long Walk Through Belmont" in Digital Americana.
Lisa has also served as an editor with Origins Literary Journal, a reader for Tin House Magazine, and a grant writer for non-profit organizations such as Urban Strategies and The Mixed Remixed Festival.
Lisa is a slave to nostalgia and when she isn't procrastinating, she's revising her first novel and working on a screenplay.
