In addition to writing poetry, LIZ AHL collects typewriters and makes books (she's the editor and publisher of Ultima Obscura Press). She holds a BFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College, the MFA in poetry from University of Pittsburgh, and the PhD in poetry writing and 20th-century literature from the University of Nebraska — Lincoln, where she taught creative writing, composition, and literature, and serves as an editorial assistant for Prairie Schooner. She is the author of A Thirst That's Partly Mine (Slapering Hol Press) and, with Chauna Craig, of Time is Thirsty (Ultima Obscura, 1997). Her work has appeared in Crab Orchard Review, The American Voice, The Formalist, Southern Poetry Review, The Pittsburgh Quarterly, 5AM, Sundog, and elsewhere. She's taught for several summers at the University of Virginia Young Writer's Workshop, and she's taught adult workshops at the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Also in Pittsburgh, she taught poetry workshops to the clients at Western Psychiatric Institute's Schizophrenic Treatment and Research Center. Currently she teaches creative writing and literature at Plymouth State College in New Hampshire. She was a founding member of Pittsburgh's Poetry & Drum Ensemble, a performance collaborative of poets and musicians. She wonders about time and distance, about the volcano, about music, about what it means to be a gal.
