A Midwesterner at heart, Lisa Mecham lives in Los Angeles with her two daughters and the dogs they suckered her into.
Her poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction have appeared in The Rumpus, Juked, and BOAAT, 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. She has also been spotlighted as a "Writer on Fire" by The Butter.
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 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 short film.
