Barbara Lisette


Barbara Lisette holds an MFA from Florida International University and currently lives in the nation’s capital. She writes to capture humanity on page, to love others through her lines. Ernest Hemingway’s advice — “Write hard and clear about what hurts” — is pinned above her metaphorical desk, next to Mother Teresa’s “If we cannot love the person we see, how can we love a God we cannot see?” You can follow her over at @fromthedeskofbl, where she promises to sporadically post all that causes her to stop, pause — and see the world.


We’d love to be pals.
