BIO

Leah Browning is an American writer and editor. She is the author of three short nonfiction books for teens and pre-teens, all of which were published by Capstone Press, and six chapbooks of poetry and prose. Her first chapbook of poetry, Making Love to the Same Man for Fifteen Years, was released by Big Table Publishing in 2009 (cover photograph by Jimmy Kang), and her second, Picking Cherries in the Española Valley, was published by Dancing Girl Press in 2010 (cover art by Sarah Browning). In a review in Off the Coast, M.J. Iuppa said that in both chapbooks, Browning wrestles with time, creating a landscape that doesnt follow a linear progression, but moves like a gyroscope (always circling back onto itself), making memory a mirror. Iuppas full review appeared in print and online in the Winter 2011 issue of Off the Coast.  

Browning
s third chapbook, In the Chair Museum, was published by Dancing Girl Press in 2013 (cover art by Sarah Browning).
