About Me

I have always loved how poetry transforms my perception of the world by first transforming how I experience language. That sense of wonder and discovery shapes my poetry coverage for The Christian Science Monitor, where I served as poetry editor for 10 years, and for other major publications. From 2015 through 2019, I wrote a monthly poetry column for The Washington Post.


Those experiences inform my approach to interviewing poets for Poetic Lines, which airs on NewTV in Greater Boston. The show features a variety of established and emerging poets.

I am the author of Un-Silenced, published by Červená Barva Press. My poems have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and have appeared in a variety of journals: The Christian Century, Connecticut Review, Dalhousie Review, and others.


I've had the joy of reading or speaking at various literary festivals including the Geraldine R. Dodge Poetry Festival, the largest poetry festival in the nation. In 2020, I served as the final judge of the Gaithersburg Literary Festival's High School Poetry Contest.

In every setting and medium, my goal is to help people connect with poetry. As one former guest of Poetic Lines said, “Elizabeth elevates an appreciation of others’ work into an art form of her own.”
