Liz Rich

Biography

Writer and dreamer, I am a chaser of sunsets and rainbows. I grew up in the Arizona desert and cherish the warmth of the sun and the whispers of quiet. My writing began at an early age, starting with small works of fiction, a play performed at my school, and a lot of poetry. My poetry is deeply personal and straight from the heart. In the beginning, I had reservations about sharing my writing, thinking it would allow too much insight into me. As my writing has evolved, I've realized how words can be like loving hands that touch the heart and how satisfying it is when one of my readers tells me I touched a place in theirs.

  • One With God (A Poem for Christian Unity) on Aug. 01, 2013

    I truly understood and appreciated the message in your words. The flow was a little awkward for me, not sure if it was the rhyming or meter. All in all I liked your poem! The Christian message is important, so I would keep working on your messages, keep publishing your poetry and keep spreading the word!! thank you
