About Elizabeth

I am a current graduate student at Columbia College where I am writing a novel which also is my thesis. I wrote and performed a one woman show when living in Los Angeles. I decided I loved writing more than acting. I have tutored fiction writing at Columbia College for the past two years and taught Columbia College's Story Workshop method to a fifth grade class at Paul Revere Intermediate School.

Why do I love about tutoring? Everything. Guiding a student from a story's begining to end. Having the student tell aloud what they are seeing in their mind and listening to a story being built. A student reading back their writing at the end of a session with a smile because they can't believe what they wrote.

I am in the process of writing my thesis for my M.F.A. and am thus always writing. I am also reading lots of fiction from novels to short stories. It's hard to write if you aren't constantly stimulating your brain through reading.

I look forward to working with you. Reading makes for better writers and good writers make everything better.
