Lisa Angle's Biography

Member Info

Dec 2009

Lisa Angle always had a vivid imagination, probably spawned from watching too much television. When in high school she became interested in computers while taking a Basic programming class taught on Commodore 64s. She went on to earn a master’s degree in Computer Based Education from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.

Technology didn’t fulfill her creative spirit. She began writing fiction and won First Prize in a CWC short story contest in 1993. She became involved with SLO NightWriters, and served as President from 1997 to ‘99. During that time she also taught creative writing at Cuesta College.

The opening of her book Whiskey and Old Stogies won Honorable Mention in Byline First Chapter of Novel Contest in 2001. Her website, Angle on Writing, which she built herself was chosen as one of Writers Digest’s 101 best sites for 2005.

Lisa enjoys helping other authors build their platforms on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media outlets. She has produced videos for organizations such as the Santa Barbara Writers Conference.

She’s currently President of the Screenwriters Association of Santa Barbara.
