Lara Lillibridge is the author of Mama, Mama, Only Mama and Girlish: Growing Up in a Lesbian Home. She holds an MFA from West Virginia Wesleyan College. In 2016, she won Slippery Elm Literary Journal's Prose Contest, and The American Literary Review's Contest in Nonfiction. When she's not writing, Lillibridge can be found shivering in a hockey arena or getting sunburned at the baseball field. She still doesn't vacuum very often, but luckily she's nearsighted enough not to notice. She resides in Cleveland, Ohio.
