Erin Wisti is a freelance writer and cat enthusiast who lives in Los Angeles. When she was three, she wanted to be a potbelly pig when she grew up, but after learning that was impossible she decided to write. Her essays have appeared in The Toast, Fanzine, Role Reboot, Ampersand Review, and other places. She grew up in very rural Michigan (John Oliver once did stand up in her hometown and was very, very confused) and got her MFA in nonfiction from Columbia College Chicago in 2014. In her free time, Erin reads a lot and makes baked good using her own recipes. Read her blog, The Tell-Tale Tart, for recipes and book recommendations.
