Liz's essay "Fault Lines" longlisted
by The Masters Review

This work made it to the top 67 after being submitted to the Emerging Voices contest (Anthology XII).

Here's hoping this essay finds its home soon!

Museum of Things

"The vivid descriptions of the objects bring the museum of Chang’s life to fullness. In those descriptions the poems become honest. These objects allow the reader to walk through her memories displayed in a way that nurtures."
--Anna Huber, Philadelphia Stories, Fall 2022

Animal Nocturne

"Liz Chang’s chapbook Animal Nocturne... explores the complexities of race, love, and motherhood through a style of poetry unique to the contemporary moment."
--Mandy Bach, Philadelphia Stories, Fall 2021

What Ordinary Objects

"...Chang holds several conversations at once. ...There is the dialogue between ordinary objects and the invented, and between sensuous colors and cautious colors. ...Chang’s luminous poems last inside the reader’s memory long after reading."
--Amy Small-McKinney, 2011 MCPL
