Elizabeth worked as a publicity and grant proposal writer for the Perry County Council of the Arts for nearly 10 years.  During the latter part of her time at PCCA, she was the editor of The Artsquarter, the council’s quarterly newsletter.  She is a founding member of Sophie’s Reaction Writers’ Group and the PCCA Coffeehouse.

In 1999, Elizabeth was named the first Perry County Poet Laureate.  In 2000-2002, she was a bi-weekly book reviewer for Swank Fowler Publications, writing a column called The Reader’s Reaction.  Also during that time, she instructed inmates of the Perry County Prison in creative writing and visited Perry County High Schools to give presentations on creative writing.

Elizabeth performed poetry accompanied by musician Jonathan Frazier, a form they dubbed BardicFusion, at local coffeehouses and book stores.  Their work can be heard on the HouseBlend CD recorded by the Coffeehouse players.  Elizabeth is currently a member of the Saturday Scribes writers’ group in Bedford, PA.  Her first book was published in May 2012, and her second book in October 2014.

  1. Hi Elizabeth, I don’t know if you accept awards or not but I have nominated you for the Dragon’s Loyalty Award! Participation is optional, and if you want further information visit me! It’s just a way of showing my appreciation. 🙂

    1. Teresa, thank you for the wonderful gesture! I appreciate it. I love the idea of awards, but I find that I never get around to fulfilling my duties, and it’s only fair and right to pass on the love. I think, for me, it will have to be enough to know that you thought of me – and it is enough. I feel honored. 🙂
