Lee Anderson (they/them) is a writer with roots in six states and an MFA from Northern Arizona University. They are on the Editorial Board for Sundress Publications and are a Journal Editor at Half Mystic Press. Previously, they were the Managing Editor of Thin Air Magazine. Published sporadically but with zest, you can find their work in The Rumpus, Columbia Journal, Gertrude, Unstamatic Magazine, and elsewhere. 

Lee was nominated for a Best of the Net award in nonfiction in 2021 and received two Pushcart Prize nominations in 2022. They were the inaugural Writer-in-Residence of the Mountain Words Writer-in-Residence program in nonfiction in Crested Butte, CO in 2021, and a participant in the Kenyon Review Writers' Workshop in 2022.

They are currently working on two book projects. Sometimes they are less projects and more "somethings."

In a perfect world, they would be a science communicator, queer counselor, neuroscientist, publisher of both books and literary magazines, full-time writer, and still have time to sit in museums. For now, they live with their partner Emily and cat Pretzel in Chicago, IL.
