A. Elizabeth Mikesell is a faculty member in the Expository Writing Program, and has been teaching Tisch artists to write about art for the last 12 years. Her own creative work runs the gamut: co-creator of the online work The Saddest Thing I Own; co-author (with the actress Jane Lynch) of the children’s book Marlene Marlene, Queen of Mean; and writer of literary essays exploring the convergence of art, personal narrative, and the physical sciences, among many other projects. She has applied for and received numerous grants on her own behalf as well as that of other artists.
