Leona Vander Molen moved to Spokane in 2017 for graduate school and couldn’t bring herself to leave due to the sun, scenery, and community. She grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and attended Denison University for a BA in English and Psychology. Following graduation she moved to Japan for a year as a part of the JET program, and taught as an assistant English teacher on the island of Awaji. She returned to the US to pursue an MFA in creative writing, which she received from Eastern Washington University. While listening to Spokane Public Radio Leona likes to knit, pet her cat, or drive to the nearest bakery for a bagel or five.
