We Walked on Water

Eliza Robertson

‘Land of the misty giants: cedar, alder, Ponderosa pine. Cascade Mountains pushing out green like grass through a garlic press.’

Eliza Robertson

Eliza Robertson attended the creative writing programs at the University of Victoria and University of East Anglia, where she received the 2011 Man Booker Scholarship.
