Lija Fisher was born in Istanbul, Turkey to American Peace Corps parents and raised in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. She received her BFA in Performance Studies from the University of Colorado, Boulder and has lived in London, LA, and NYC.
She’s performed on stages across New York, California, Florida, Colorado and Alaska where she was chased by a bear. When not being hunted down by local wildlife, you can find her writing at a cozy coffee shop or disappearing into the mountains for a hike. In 2017 she was granted a writing residency as part of the Aspen Words/Catto Shaw Foundation. She currently lives in Colorado but dreams of residing in a castle where she is tended to by knights in shining armor or manly Vikings. Either would be fine.
