Liz Prato's short story collection, Baby's on Fire was published by Press 53 in 2015. Her stories and essays have appeared in dozens of literary journals and magazines, including Hayden's Ferry Review, Carve, Iron Horse Literary Review, Hunger Mountain, and ZYZZYVA. She is the Editor at Large for Forest Avenue Press, where she edited the anthology, The Night, and the Rain, and the River (2014). She has also guest-edited for VoiceCatcher and Prime Number Magazine.

A Tennessee Williams Scholar at the 2012 Sewanee Writers Conferece, and a frequent attendee of the Tin House Summer Writers Workshop, Liz has been privileged to study with Steve Almond, Aimee Bender, Charles D'Ambrosio, Anthony Doerr, Jim Shepard, and other talented authors.

Liz has been teaching writing since 2008, and presents at literary festivals and conferences across the country. She lives with her furry feline friends and her best friend/husband, who is a bookseller, musician, and writer in Portland, Oregon.

Liz's newest project is a linked essay collection that explores her decades-long relationship with Hawai‘i through the lens of white imperialism.
