  • About Me

    I hold a Ph.D. in English from Queen's University Belfast with a dissertation on James Joyce as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language, an MFA in Poetics and Creative Writing from New College of California, and a BA from the still-successful Evergreen State College. Currently I am a Contributing Editor to Poets' Quarterly and a Liberal Arts Instructor at the College of the Marshall Islands.

    Well, there's this one drunk Irishman who lived in Trieste for a while . . .

    Looked like a cool thing to look into. Just emailed you.

    Amanda Harris – Jun 08, 2013

    Thanks for your words on "Carver". I think that I've always felt (or maybe wanted to feel) that my body was mutable, changeable-maybe not permeable but something I could "modify".

    Amanda Harris – May 18, 2013

    Thank you so much, Elizabeth, for commenting on and faving "After Prom". I think it's kinda awesome that you contributed to an anthology on Lady Gaga-"Just Dance" was playing at the prom that inspired my poem.

    Glad you liked Kahma. I don't talk like that, honest.

    Joani Reese – Nov 28, 2010

    Thanks for liking my poem "Morning," Elizabeth. I appreciate your kind words.

    Meg Pokrass – Nov 27, 2010

    Elizabeth, thank you for finding Lake Chelan and for your lovely comments about it!

    Thanks, Elizabeth! (Re: my profile picture.) It was taken in Amsterdam. Just read your bio --- your life sounds amazingly interesting! I also used to live in Brooklyn.

    Julie Innis – Oct 09, 2010

    Really enjoyed The Secret Life - looking forward to reading more of your work here. And thank you for your comment on My First Serial Killer. It's been quite a while since I read The Collector, but I like your connection. Thank you for jostling my thinking on my story.
