Elizabeth Lovatt is a writer of fiction and creative non-fiction currently living in London. Her work has featured in Popshot Magazine, Cipher Press Shorts and 404 Ink, among others. She is interested in the intersection between literary fiction, queer identity, technology. In November 2020 she was accepted onto Penguin Books’ #WriteNow mentorship scheme for underrepresented writers to develop her first book, Thank You For Calling the Lesbian Line, which explores the phone logs of a lesbian phone line service from the 90s and her own reflections on lesbian identity.
She also runs the tiny narrative — a monthly newsletter of personal despatches for narrative obsessives. In 2019 she was a writer in residence for Islington Pride and the ruckus! archive and is the creator of the fanzine LOVE TOVE celebrating writer and artist Tove Jansson.
Elizabeth is a proud graduate of the Write Like a Grrrl programme run by For Books' Sake, the website that champions writing by women. She's also one of The Futures in the Making, an Arts Council funded LGBTQ collective led by Olumide Popoola. She has an MA in Creative and Critical Writing from Birkbeck and graduated with a distinction. While at Birkbeck was also on the Editorial board for The Mechanics Institute Review's 16th issue.
The rest of the time she’s on twitter or reading.
