Liz Kay is a founding editor of Spark Wheel Press and the journal burntdistrict. Liz holds an MFA from the University of Nebraska, where she was the recipient of both an Academy of American Poets Prize and the Wendy Fort Foundation Prize for exemplary work in poetry. Her poems have appeared in such journals as Beloit Poetry Journal, RHINO, Nimrod, Willow Springs, The New York Quarterly, Iron Horse Literary Review, Redactions, and Sugar House Review. Liz’s debut novel, Monsters: A Love Story, was published by G. P. Putnam’s Sons in June of 2016. She lives in Omaha, NE with her husband and 3 sons.

Kay writes on her blog, “My novel, Monsters: A Love Story, while it masquerades as a fast, fun beach read, tackles issues of gender disparity and sexual power dynamics. The book specifically questions why women are held accountable for behaviors that don’t seem out-of-bounds for men, whether it’s drinking, or swearing, or promiscuity.”
