Liz Asch is an author and artist based in Portland, Oregon. Her book, Your Salt on My Lips (Cleis Press, 2021) is an ode to eros in queer bodies across the spectrum of sexuality and sensuality. Her podcast, Body Land Metaphor Medicine, is a free archive of over 40 guided visualizations designed to help listeners self-regulate using creative imagery. Her stop-motion animation film, The Love Seat, played in LGBT film festivals in the US and Canada. Liz has published in various journals and anthologies, earning her a Pushcart nomination, a RACC grant, a PLAYA residency and several essay prizes. She teaches embodied surrealism and salutary storytelling, with an emphasis on earth activism, creative expression, and public health.
