About the Event

Please join the Canyon Poets on October 7th when we feature Elizabeth Block. Elizabeth Block is an award-winning author. She received a Doris Roberts/William Goyen Fiction Fellowship from the Christopher Isherwood Foundation for her novel, A Gesture Through Time, among many other literary awards and artist residency fellowships. She has also published a book of poetry and many short works in journals, anthologies, and magazines. She has read her work across the United States at venues such as City Lights Books, Elliot Bay Books, LitQuake, Why There Are Words, and the Santa Fe Art Institute. Elizabeth has produced, directed, shot, and edited her own films in 16mm and video. Her shorts are distributed by a premier world experimental/artists’ film distributor, Canyon Cinema. She has screened her films extensively in festivals, tours, archives, museums, and micro cinemas. Originally trained in the theater, she has written and directed for live stage. She received her MFA in Film from the California College of the Arts, in San Francisco, and her BA with high honors in Cultural Anthropology from the University of Michigan. She also studied poetry at Bard College. She has taught writing at various SF Bay Area Colleges and as a visiting faculty at The New School, NYC. She is a contributing writer for The Brooklyn RailWhat Kind of Woman, her screenplay, placed as a quarter-finalist in the 2018 ScreenCraft Film Fund, as a finalist in the 2018 SF Indie Fest Screenplay Competition, and as a finalist in the 2018 Filmmatic Screenplay Competition. She loves writing dark comedy and deadpan humor, but Covid-19 seems to protract negotiations with her approach to storytelling and social observation. She works as a copywriter and an editor. Elizabeth is happy to present new work and to engage with you. Thank you for Zooming in.
