Cali Luisa Lemus is a Creative Writing BFA student with a specialty in Fiction Writing at Columbia College Chicago. Her writing is largely influenced by her life and often reflects the places she’s been and the people she’s met. Recently she’s been working on a creative nonfiction essay collection about her family and their experiences immigrating from Mexico. She is also an Advanced Tutor for Columbia’s Writing Department and is a part of the acquisitions editing team for Hair Trigger 40. When she’s not writing or working you can usually find her on the floor with her rescue mutt, Jaxson.
