About the Artist

Elizabeth Austen (Seattle) received 2010 GAP Award funding to cover travel expenses to give poetry readings in New York, Los Angeles, and San Diego from two new chapbooks published in 2010, The Girl Who Goes Alone (Floating Bridge Press) and Where Currents Meet (Toadlily Press). This three-city reading tour will give her the opportunity to make new connections and lay the groundwork for a larger reading tour in 2011 for her full-length book, How the End Begins, to be published in 2011 by Blue Begonia.
