She is the big cheese of Big Fat Press, which publishes hand-printed chapbooks of experimental fiction, poetry and performance texts. Her work has appeared in anthologies including Aloud: Voices from the Nuyorican Poet’s Café (Henry Holt), and Verses That Hurt: Pleasure and Pain from the Poemfone Poets (St. Martin’s), and periodicals including Interview, Lungfull, Excursus Literary Journal, and WV. She was a 2001 fiction fellow at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Elliott earned an MFA from UC San Diego, and a BFA from Washington University, both in visual art/performance. She lives in Flatbush, Brooklyn, and earns her keep as a quantitative analyst.
