In this episode of the Strange Horizons podcast, editor Ciro Faienza presents Liz Adair's “Dragon in the E.R.”



Liz is a gutless wonder—a poet without a large intestine, trying to write gut-punching poems. She received her B.A. in English from the University of Alabama in 2016. Currently, she serves as the Managing Editor of The McNeese Review, and organizes MSU’s graduate reading series. She is the first place recipient of the 2019 Joy Scantlebury Poetry Prize, and her poems have been selected as finalists for Jabberwock Review’s 2019 Nancy D. Hargrove Editors’ Prize in Poetry and F(r)iction’s Winter 2018 Poetry Contest, judged by Kwame Dawes. She lives in Lake Charles, Louisiana, with her (very cute) dog, Rocky.

verb 4 [C] to constantly be at war, spill your blood and drink. to faint and revive yourself. to brag of your scars.
