Meet Writer in Residence Lija Fisher

May 16, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm UTC-6

The Aspen Words Writer in Residence program, held in partnership with the Catto Shaw Foundation, offers writers an opportunity to spend one month in Woody Creek, CO to focus on current writing projects. Each resident will read and discuss their work at community events held monthly at Hooch Craft Cocktail bar in downtown Aspen. This is an opportunity to discover new writers, learn about the creative process, and support artists. Events are free and open to the public, but donations at the door are encouraged.

Our May Writer in Residence is Lija Fisher. Lija was born in Istanbul, Turkey and raised in the mountains of Colorado. She received her B.F.A. in Theatre Performance from the University of Colorado, Boulder and has performed on stages across California, Colorado, New York and Alaska. The first book in her debut middle grade series, “Clivo Wren and the Fall of the Phoenix,” will be published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 2018.
