Name:ysabetwordsmith
Location:Illinois, United States
Elizabeth Barrette works as a writer and editor in central Illinois. She writes articles, essays, short stories, reviews, interviews, poetry, and more. Her main fields include speculative fiction, gender studies, and alternative religions. Her first book is Composing Magic: How to Create Magical Spells, Rituals, Blessings, Chants, and Prayers. She served as Managing Editor of PanGaia magazine for 7 years and Dean of Studies at the Grey School of Wizardry for 4 years. She often presents panels and workshops at conventions and festivals. She has eagerly observed the rise of electronic publication and online writing, and hopes to continue working with this cutting edge of literature. She enjoys suspension-of-disbelief bungee-jumping and spelunking in other people's reality tunnels.
