Next fall, Lizzie is thrilled to begin her new position as Howe Writing Center Director and tenure-line assistant professor in English at Miami University. In February, she successfully defended her dissertation, an intellectual history and recovery project of Louise Rosenblatt’s transactional theory of literacy, with particular emphasis on this theory’s relevance for issues of transfer in the college-level teaching of writing and reading.

Last fall, Lizzie presented a paper at the 2017 NCTE Conference in St. Louis, Missouri; this summer (2018) she will attend both the IWCA Summer Institute in Indianapolis and WPA conference in Sacramento. Look her up if you are there!

Lizzie’s poetry was recently featured in the the Denver Quarterly and The Moth Magazine, and is forthcoming in Crab Orchard Review.

She has a chapter analyzing undergraduates’ varied taxonomies of writing in Developing Writers (in press); “Mutual Adjustments,” co-authored with Anne Ruggles Gere, Ben Keating, Anna Knutson, Christie Toth and Naomi Silver, appeared in College EnglishWinter 2017.

Her book of poetry, She’d Waited Millennia is available from New Issues Press.
