Liz’s poetry is physical – rooted in the body, in experiences that can be touched, felt, and seen. It can be sexy, painful, tragic, or grotesque. “My first poetry teacher told me that he could always tell what a writer was afraid of because they would write around it,” Liz says. “So now, whenever I catch myself writing around something, avoiding something, I deliberately push myself into that space.”

Liz was a semi-finalist in Capturing Fire, the first national, queer poetry slam. She has featured previously at the original Busboys and Poets, *Sparkle* a queer driven open mic at the 5th and K location, and The Garden open mic at Bloombars.

She is the Board President of Mothertongue, a spoken word open mic by women for women; a planning committee member of Small is Beautiful, an arts collective that promotes local artists; and a founding member of the Small is Beautiful writing workshop.

She lives in DC where she plays a mean bass guitar and works for a health care advocacy group giving voice to the voiceless of our current health care system.
