Lisa Maria Martin is a content strategist, information architect, and writer in Washington, DC. In her previous lives, she’s been a copywriter, a designer, a journalist, and a lecturer at several universities, extolling the virtues of MLA citation and Oxford commas. When she isn’t making an honest living, her writing shows up in lit journals like Pleiades, Puerto del Sol, The Indiana Review, and others. You can read Lisa Maria’s every-blue-moon blog at thefutureislikepie.com, or follow her on Twitter @redsesame (but she mostly tweets about doges and Star Trek. Fair warning).
