Lea Grover

Writer/Speaker

Lea Grover is a writer and speaker in Chicago. Her writing is featured in ten anthologies, including “Listen To Your Mother: What She Said Then, What We're Saying Now.” She contributes to publications ranging from Cosmopolitan, to AlterNet, to Woman's Day, and speaks about sex positivity parenting and on behalf of the RAINN Speakers Bureau.

Lea’s first publication came when she was nine years old, a poem inspired by Mussorgsky’s “Night on Bald Mountain.” Through adolescence she was routinely included in regional poetry journals, and began studying prose when she was admitted to college at fourteen. While following her polymath interests through seven universities and several years of national service, she continued to publish. In 2010 she began a parenting blog, Becoming SuperMommy. Her lyrical and approachable style attracted a dedicated readership base, opening the door to her freelancing career.

She currently writes for Cosmopolitan, Brain, Child Magazine, Esquire, Good Housekeeeping, Redbook, Seventeen, Women’s Day, Chicago Parent, Yahoo!, AlterNet, xoJane, Scary Mommy, YourTango, and the many corners of the internet.
