Lia graduated with her BA in English in 2014, and has since worked as the director of content at a marketing agency in Maine. During her time as an undergrad, she studied sociopolitical themes in Irish American drama and honed in on her interest in modernism, achieving a high pass on her comprehensive exams and graduating as the top student in the department. She's hopelessly passionate about the written word, and writes with enthusiasm on topics ranging from Imagism to ductless mini-splits. Lia is particularly interested in the unreliable narrator, collaborative techniques for writing instruction, the Lost Generation, and how literature reacted to and was shaped by Victorian forms. Her recent travels have been shamelessly centered around stalking Saint-Exupéry (in Casablanca) and Hemingway (in Havana).
