3rd Year Student Profile: Elizabeth Brasher

Note: This is the first in a series profiling New Mexico State University MFA students in their 3rd and last year of the program. Check back weekly or so to learn about the intellectually and creatively diverse graduate students studying writing here at NMSU.

Elizabeth Brasher

Originally from the three-stoplight town of Bloomfield, New Mexico, Elizabeth Brasher is currently completing her MFA in creative writing with an emphasis in poetry at NMSU, where she teaches composition and creative writing and works as an associate editor for the literary journal, Puerto del Sol. Elizabeth is an assistant editor for Bone Bouquet, an online journal of women’s poetry, and she writes for Feminist Review. She is also a volunteer with Women for Afghan Women. She holds an MA in literature and a BA in English, and lives in Las Cruces with her husband and daughter.

Her work, mostly poetry and essay, focuses on the intersections between Women as a construct and women in the everyday domestic and work environments. Her work has not made an appearance in any literary journals, but she remains slightly optimistic about the possibility. She would like to teach creative writing at a college or university after she graduates.

Elizabeth will have her public reading on October 22nd with poet Cynthia Hogue, as part of the La Sociedad Para Las Artes Nelson/Boswell Reading Series
