Elizabeth Morton has been telling tales ever since she learned to talk. Growing up in the suburbs, she had superpowers, invisible sidekicks, and alligators in the yard.
Her poetry and prose are published in New Zealand, UK, USA, Ireland, Australia, Canada and online. She is included in Best Small Fictions 2016, and came second, twice, in the Sunday Star-Times Short Story competition. She came first in the New Voices Emerging Poet competition (2013), was shortlisted in both poetry and short story categories of the Bridport Prize (2018), and was highly commended in the Kathleen Grattan Award (2015). She is feature poet in the 2017 Poetry New Zealand Yearbook. Her first poetry collection, Wolf, is published by Mākaro Press (2017).
She likes to write about broken things and things with teeth.
