Liz Worth

Liz Worth has been praised for her unique perspective and acute attention to detail. She channels Lydia Lunch, Patti Smith and Jim Morrison—and bridges the gap between literature and music with a surreal style of writing and stream-of-consciousness pacing. Her novel is unconventional, edgy and emotional. A Poetic and gritty story, her novel PostApoc (Now or Never Publishing) introduces readers to Ang, sole survivor of a suicide pact who lives to see the end of the world. In addition to her novel, Liz is the author of three chapbooks and has had her writing appear in ExClaim!, Dead Gender, Carousel and The Toronto Star, among others. [Photo by Greg Gaines]
