A midwesterner at heart, Lisa Mecham lives in Los Angeles with her two daughters and the dog they suckered her into.
Lisa is pursuing a Certificate in Creative Writing from the UCLA Extension Writers' Program where she was nominated for the 2012 James Kirkwood Award. Her fiction, non-fiction and poetry has been published in WordPlaySound, Emerge Literary Journal, Nib Magazine, The Drum, Chaparral, and Digital Americana. Lisa was also an award nominated storyteller for the 2012-2013 Season Opener of The Monti. She is a reader for Tin House and contributes editor interviews to The Review Review.
Lisa is a slave to nostalgia and office supplies and when she isn't procrastinating, she's at work on her first novel under the mentorship of Jenna Johnson, Senior Editor at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Fred Leebron of Queens University of Charlotte as part of the "One Book Semester" program.
