I am Elizabeth Dutton and I like the following things:
words, photographs, flowers, dogs, trees, rock music, oceans, moths, postcards, seas, fragrances, chicken salad, islands, costume jewelry, true crime stories, geodes, naps, baseball, inappropriate humor, postcards, tacos, Soviet design aesthetic, mascara, sailors, über nerds, cigar boxes, grand gestures, hammocks, quiet revenge, trinkets, maps, trivia, the blues, digital watches, water, skulls, transcendence, matchbooks, compassion, sunshine, rosaries, scarves, fog, bird nests, disregard for convention, sunglasses, and laughter.
I am a writer. I got my BA in English from UC Davis (where I was able to study under Gary Snyder). I received my Masters in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow, which was basically magnificent. I teach at a community/technical college (which, I think, is exciting and essential and authentic). This website is where you can find out about what I have written and how you can get your sweet little mitts on these items, as well as any other information I think is relevant.
