Leah Sottile Preston
Leah Sottile is a freelance journalist whose work is frequently featured by The Atlantic, Al Jazeera America and Playboy. She has written on topics far and wide: giant earthworms, Elvis impersonators, My Little Pony fans, drugs, jails, sex, heavy metal, the American Dream and what people will do for God. She is also a fiction writer, with work appearing in Spokane Shorties, Lilac City Fairytales and The Spokesman-Review. She is the 2015 Riverlit Writer in Residence. Newspaper writing isn’t her only interest that’s dying off — she’s a fan of radio too, and has hosted two late night heavy metal programs when she was younger and had more energy. She lives and writes in Portland, Oregon.
