Lisa Maria Martin is a content strategist, information architect, and writer based in Washington, DC. She is also an editor at A List Apart. 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 follow her on Twitter (but she mostly tweets about doges and Star Trek. Fair warning).
