About

Lee Anderson (they/them) is a writer with roots in six states and an MFA from Northern Arizona University. They are the Marketing Director at Sundress Publications and was the Managing Editor of Thin Air Magazine in 2020-21. Published sporadically but with zest, you can find their work in The Rumpus, Columbia Journal, Gertrude, Unstamatic Magazine, and elsewhere with a nomination for a Best of the Net award in 2021.

They were the inaugural Writer-in-Residence of the Mountain Words Writer-in-Residence program in Crested Butte, CO in 2021. In 2022, they will be a joyful attendant of the Kenyon Review Writers' Workshop.

Currently, they are finishing a novel about citrus, phenomenology, and reconciliation, with another project looming.

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.
