ExpertisePoetry--with a particular interest in poems that engage with a sense of place, biology, history, and collaborations with/responses to visual art. Literary publications that bridge page and world.
ProfileElizabeth Bradfield is the author of two collections of poetry: Interpretive Work (Arktoi Books/Red Hen Press, 2008), which won the Audre Lorde Award and was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award, and Approaching Ice (Persea Books, 2010), a book of poems about Arctic and Antarctic exploration that was a finalist for the James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets.
Bradfield's poetry has been published in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Poetry, Prairie Schooner, Field, The Believer, Orion, and numerous other journals and anthologies. She has been awarded fellowships and scholarships from Stanford University's Wallace Stegner program, the Bread Loaf Writer's Conference, the Vermont Studio Center, and elsewhere.
In 2005, Bradfield founded Broadsided (broadsidedpress.org), which she still runs. A grassroots, virtual, collaborative press, Broadsided attempts to pull literary work out of journals and put it on the streets. It brings words together with the energy of original visual art, publishing monthly collaborations on the website as pdfs that are then downloaded, printed, and posted around the world by "Vectors."
In addition to teaching poetry, Bradfield works as a naturalist and assists with field work on gray seals.
