About the Author

Photo: Lisa Sette

Elizabeth Bradfield's poetry has been published in The Atlantic Monthly, Poetry, Prairie Schooner, Field, The Believer, Orion and elswhere, as well as the anthologies Joyful Noise: An Anthology of American Spiritual Poetry (Autumn House Press, 2007), Best New Poets 2006 (Meridian Press), and The Bedside Guide to No Tell Motel (2006).

Bradfield holds an MFA from the University of Alaska Anchorage, and has been awarded a Wallace Stegner Fellowship from Stanford as well as scholarships to the Bread Loaf Writer's Conference and the Vermont Studio Center. She is founder and editor of Broadsided Press (, a monthly publication with the goal of getting literature and art out onto the streets and into our daily lives.

Elizabeth grew up in Tacoma, Washington and has since called Cape Cod and Alaska home. In addition to leading a literary life, Liz works as a naturalist. Her work in the field fuels her sense of poetry as a means of interpreting the world.

Bradfield's second book of poems, titled Approaching Ice, will be published in late 2009 by Persea Books. :
