Librarian by day, writer at dusk and dawn, I have a background in medieval studies, the history of the book, and rare books. Although it is difficult to fit writing into my life, it would be harder to let it go.

I love feedback and would enjoy your thoughts and suggestions. I’m on Twitter: @EMitchellwriter; Goodreads: Elizabeth Anne Mitchell; email: lapidaryprose@gmail.com; and Facebook, at Elizabeth Anne Mitchell. I have a blog, Leavekeeping, to track my progress in the writing challenge, A Round of Words in 80 Days

  1. Hi,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ve enjoyed reading yours tonight. I’d love to hear more about your training as a medievalist. I’m not sure what that is. When I lived in the Seattle area one of my girlfriends loved things like the Renaissance Fair and a copule of other festivals. She bought period clothes and knew about the craftsmanship of the day. –She was deeply interested in learning more, but wasn’t sure how / where to get deeper training.

    1. Thanks, Kimberly. I’m glad you enjoyed the blog. As for my training,I have a master’s degree in Comparative Literature, with a certificate in Medieval Studies. I am through my coursework for the Ph,D., with a concentration in Medieval Studies as well. Your girlfriends certainly needn’t do anything that intense! I’d suggest she get in touch with her local SCA (Society of Creative Anachronism); I think they would have a lot of information about where she could learn things. To be honest, I’ve not had a lot of contact with them (there’s a real chasm between the academics and the SCA), but they should be helpful.
