Liz Zetlin

Poetry appeared late in Liz’s 40s, when she found herself writing in every room of the house. She’s inspired by garlic, rivers, limestone, and apostrophes. Badminton and the backs of squirrels. By language itself, and the people she knows and admires, disagrees with and loves. Her work is inspired by confluences of documentary, autobiography and activism.

Best known as a “nature poet with a twist,” Liz has planted garlic to form words of prayer, inscribed words on ornamental gourds as catalysts for poems and grew punctuation marks in her hay field. Now Liz’s focus is docu-video poems about water and the creatures that depend upon it.
