Elizabeth Bradfield

Elizabeth Bradfield is the author of Approaching Ice (Persea, 2010), which was a finalist for the James Laughlin Award from the Academy of American Poets, and Interpretive Work (Arktoi Books, 2008), which won the 2009 Audre Lorde Prize and was a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award. Her work has appeared in The Atlantic, Poetry, The Believer, Orion, and other journals and anthologies.

Bradfield grew up in Tacoma, Washington, and has worked as a naturalist on boats in Southeast Alaska, Baja, the Gulf of Maine, Antarctica, the Peruvian Amazon and the Canadian Arctic. A former Stegner Fellow, she works as a naturalist and lives on Cape Cod. Currently, she is the 2012–2014 Poet-in-Residence at Brandeis University.
