Introduction I'm the author of "Altitude Sickness", a wry and candid examination of the inanity of rock and ice climbing and the mainstream culture that venerates them. Future Tense Books, October 2014. My essay "After the Fire" was selected as one of the "Most Notable Essays of 2011" by Best American Essays 2012. I'm a Contributing Editor at the literary site The Weeklings. We partner with Salon and have received praise from The New Yorker, The Daily Beast, Slate, and others. My work appears in The Believer, BlackBook, Esquire, Jezebel, McSweeney's, Men's Health, Monkeybicycle, MSN, New York Magazine, Nerve, Nylon, The Onion's A.V. Club, Paste, Poets & Writers, Salon, Slate, The Weeklings, on NPR, KUOW, and additional venues. I've interviewed Sherman Alexie, The Black Keys, Betty Davis (the legendary, reclusive soul singer), Death Cab for Cutie, Estelle, Ron Jeremy, Janelle Monae, Alanis Morissette, Kelly Rowland, Wanda Sykes, Rufus Wainwright, Ann Wilson and several dozen others. The Seattle Weekly named me one of "50 Women Who Rock Seattle". CONTACT ME AT litsa.dremousis@gmail.com. Twitter @LitsaDremousis.
