Elizabeth Eslami

Elizabeth Eslami is the author of the forthcoming story collection, Hibernate, for which she was awarded the 2013 Ohio State University Prize in Short Fiction, and the novel Bone Worship (Pegasus, 2010). Her essays, short stories, and travel writing have appeared most recently in The Rumpus, The Literary Review, Michigan Quarterly Review and The Sun, and her work is featured in the anthologies Tremors: New Fiction By Iranian American Writers and Writing Off Script: Writers on the Influence of Cinema. She currently teaches in the MFA Program at Manhattanville College. Liz is always looking for writing that makes her feel something, which means that the author, even after numerous revisions, should be able to read the work and still be bruised by it, or deeply amused by it, and maybe even amazed by the accidental beauty of its construction.
