A midwesterner at heart, Lisa Mecham lives in Los Angeles with her two daughters and the dog they suckered her into.
Lisa writes a little bit of everything. Her poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction have appeared in The Rumpus, Carve, and Barrelhouse Online, among other publications. Her 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 in an editorial capacity with Unboxed Books and Origins Literary Journal and as a reader for Tin House Magazine.
Lisa is a slave to nostalgia and office supplies and when she isn't procrastinating, she's revising a novel and writing her first screenplay.
