Lew Andrada

Fiction / Pop Fiction Reader – Fall 2015

Lew Andrada began writing stories at a young age, primarily fan fiction starring characters from his favorite videogame (Final Fantasy 6) and cartoon show (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).  By the time he entered college, he had ditched fan fiction in favor of writing original short stories.  In 2006, he graduated from UCLA with a B.S. in biology and minor in English.  Then in 2012, he completed his coursework with the UCLA Extension Writers’ Program and received a certificate in creative writing.

He is currently a student in the Stonecoast MFA Program at the University of Southern Maine, with a focus on popular fiction.  Lew enjoys writing fantasy and science fiction, though he does dabble in other genres, like horror and humor.  His work has previously appeared in The UCLA Beat, The Literary Hatchet, and The Journal of Unlikely Entomology.
