ELIZABETH LEONARD// Co-Founder, Co-Editor, Events
After graduating from NYU, Elizabeth joined the "real" world with a proper job, a house, a car, and a promise to write when she was a stable adult. She turned in her resignation for this life in exchange for one she was better at. She moved to London to study at City University and write her first novel. She loves weeping willows, the drumming of the Thames, and a cheap spiral-bound notebook with a good pen. She is a Teaching Artist for Community Word Project in NYC.
