Alexa Leigh Corbett (A. Leigh Corbett) is an American poet, writer, and artist whom authored fourteen books by the conclusion of 2017. She released her first collection of poetry at eighteen years old after overcoming childhood dyslexia. Alexa also holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from Chapman University; her MFA thesis, Boxes, was published a few months following her graduation in July 2017.

While still an undergraduate in 2015, Alexa released four books in four different genres on the same day in December: poetry, fiction, a short story collection, and a memoir. With well over 850 poems published between nine poetry books, Alexa is prolific as she is accomplished. Her fiction has appeared in Black Heart Magazine, Torrid Literature Journal, Writers Tribe Review,and Chapman Magazine. She is also a member of Sigma Tau Delta, The International English Honors Society and holds Presidential membership status with The National Society of Leadership and Success.

By 2018, Alexa has produced a total of 195 paintings, 35 of which were created during the first quarter of 2018. In October 2017, RAW Artists recruited Alexa for a January 2018 art show in Costa Mesa, California. Her artwork primarily consists of watercolors on hot-pressed paper, although she has done work on other surfaces like Claybord (by Ampersand), and with various mediums such as ink, charcoal, acrylic, and pastels. Her painting Stained Glass has been featured on the cover of Calliope: Art & LiteraryMagazine, and was displayed alongside her other watercolors in their own exhibit at Chapman University in 2014.
