About

I’m a writer and artist with moderate Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and my husband, Michael, has Cerebral Palsy. As such, I tend to write a lot about health and disability and the stigma that surrounds visible and invisible disabilities. As well, some of what I do plays with art and writing in a way that doesn’t fit into easy categories. This website is a home for that and other musings.

Here is a short bio:

Alizabeth Worley graduated from BYU’s MFA program in Utah, where she lives with her husband and two kids. She was a 2016 winner of the AWP Intro Journals Award for her poem “Kid” and her work has appeared or is forthcoming in Guernica, Grist, Tar River Poetry, Iron Horse Literary Review, and elsewhere. Her husband, Michael, is an attorney with spastic quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. They take seriously the business of eating breakfast for dinner, watching The Good Place, and walking around their Alma Mater (also BYU) together, especially while the bells are playing.
