Writers talking to writers about writing. That is what Austin Liti Limits is all about. We are shining the spotlight on writers living in or visiting Austin, Texas, filming readings and interviews with bestsellers, award-winners, up-and-comers, and indies.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this episode was filmed virtually via Zoom. Austin Liti Limits will reconvene at BookPeople when it is safe to do so.

Before devoting herself to writing, Elizabeth variously tended bar, taught English, drove a cab, edited psychology dissertations, and painted silos and cooling towers at a petrochemical plant. For a time, she lived in a one-room cabin in the woods outside of Flagstaff, Arizona while she worked as a classical music announcer. A native of West Texas, she is most at home in the desert, near the sea, or on the side of a mountain. She lives in Chicago, but she dreams of being bicoastal (Lake Michigan and Lake Travis). She is a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and is the recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and two fellowships from the Illinois Arts Council as well as a grant from the Barbara Deming Foundation. In addition, she was a Rona Jaffe Scholar in Fiction at Bread Loaf and a Fellow at the MacDowell Colony. In the spring of 2015, she was one of six Writers in Residence at Hedgebrook. https://www.elizabethwetmore.com/
