Liz Bedell lives in Northampton, MA. For the past twenty years, she has been a high school English teacher and administrator, immersing herself within a school community. But next September, if her courage holds, she will not be in a school but will instead be focusing on her writing, while tutoring/ teaching, writing coaching and editing in various guises to pay the bills. Clearing space for writing in this way feels tantamount to jumping off a cliff, but it’s high time. She is currently at work on a novel set during and after the Great War.
