An Illinois transplant who grew up and went to school in Indiana for 22 years, Elizabeth holds a BFA in creative writing and has enjoyed traveling across the country and parts of Europe. She has visited half of the states, as well as parts of Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean, and regularly travels home to the Hoosier State to see friends and family. With more than five years of writing experience, Elizabeth’s articles have been featured on several websites, and her poetry and short stories have been published in multiple literary journals.
History and art come together in the most unexpected way in the most unexpected place. A shrine to 1960s and 1970s pop culture and politics sits in Illinois’ largest Amish community serving as both a memorial and a time capsule.
