Conversation with Lonie McMichael, Ph.D.


Lonie McMichael has wanted to be a writer since age 3.

For many years she practiced her trade as a technical writer in the high tech industry. After going to graduate school, she found her calling in fat studies, exploring the fat individual’s experience. Graduating with a Ph.D. in technical communication and rhetoric, she wrote her dissertation on the medical rhetoric surrounding the “obesity epidemic” and how such rhetoric legitimizes fat prejudice—topics which have become two separate books, Talking Fat and Acceptable Prejudice? (the latter to be published by Pearlsong Press in 2013).

She is currently teaching professional and technical writing at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and working on her third book about things fat.
