2013 Book Festival Author

Jen Larsen is a writer and editor living in Ogden, UT. In 2006, she underwent weight-loss surgery and lost almost 200 pounds. Six years later, she's still trying to figure out what that means in terms of health and body acceptance, but feels lucky to have experienced the full spectrum of weight and size issues on either end of the scale.

For two years, Larsen was the featured blogger at CondĂ© Nast's Elastic Waist. Her columns have also been syndicated on Yahoo! Shine. She is a contributor to Big Fat Deal, a blog about weight in media and popular culture, and her work has appeared in Strange Horizons, Word Riot, Emprise Review, and South Loop Review, among other publications. She is obsessed with tattoos as a way to transform your body, and has an MFA in creative writing from the University of San Francisco.
