The Blue Nib

Liz is a long-time resident of Scranton Pennsylvania who grew up in Springfield, Massachusetts, spending several years in Lowell, MA and also Portland, Maine. She adores the ocean, getting to the beach whenever she can.

Most of her working life has been devoted to human services and to teaching secondary English in public schools.

Poetry and writing entered her life as a teenager, but real love for it was infused by her relationships with a high school English teacher, Mabel Morill and her Marywood College teacher and mentor, Barbara Hoffman.

Liz has had poems published in the Mulberry Poet’s anthology, Palpable Clock, University of Scranton Press & the Blue Nib. Her short stories, and articles have appeared in ergo magazine of Prufrock’s Cafe during the early 1990s.
