Elizabeth is currently at work on a book of creative nonfiction about climate change, wilderness, and queerness. Through varying landscapes, she is investigating how settler colonialism and white supremacy have created a sense of separation between humans and nature, and is looking to queerness as a way to rethink our communities and ecologies.

Her essays have appeared in The RumpusThe Toast, and PANK Magazine



Elizabeth's fiction has previously been published in The Appendix and Cha: An Asian Literary Journal. Her short story "The Earth That Stands Before Us" was named a finalist for Sundress Publication's 2011 Best of the Net Anthology.
